Project #1: Le Partenariat

Founded in 1981, Le Partenariat is an international solidarity organisation that fights against inequalities and acts for a more united world.

In Senegal, to reduce the use of fossil fuels (such as wood and coal), which causes deforestation and is a poor use of natural resources. The Emerging Senegal Plan was set up in 2015 with the aim to increase its share to 15% of the total country’s renewable energy resources by 2025. To help achieve this objective, since 2017, Le Partenariat has been running a Renewable Energy Access Programme with the Regional Development Agency of Saint-Louis and the NGO GERES.

This programme aims to install alternative energy fuels (such as solar and biogas), within the agriculture and farming industries and to make it easily accessible within the marketplace. This will help provide alternative sustainable methods, including, use of solar power for the irrigation of land and to produce biogas to supply equipment for the conservation and processing of agricultural products, and adopting biodigestion practices to create compost for the land.

Women farmers will be provided with the training that will develop skills in conservation, to help farm and produce their goods and improve agricultural yields using biodigestion methods.

Gret

Guarantees access to sustainable energy sources (solar and biogas) to improve crop yields and transformation of agricultural products.

Goals

  • 19 biogas units installed
  • More than 500 tonnes of compost produced per year
  • 556 women trained in solar energy and biogas practices

Métamorphose

Project #2: Women's Worldwide Web

W4 aims to defend and promote the rights of women around the world.

In Bir Salah and Fatnassa, Tunisia, the project addresses two crucial issues concerning the country’s rural development; the economic vulnerability of women working mainly in agriculture, and the constant desertification of land. Since 2016, W4 and its local partner, Dream in Tunisia, created a programme that has trained 40 women in agroecology to help them gain financial security, harvesting and marketing of new crops with methods that respect the environment, as well as creating additional support by forming cooperatives.

Also, an online training programme for sustainable agriculture and women's entrepreneurship is being developed. This online tool will give these women access to educational videos on seed management, water-saving irrigation systems, product marketing, information on cooperatives, information on land rights and more. To help support the work of these women in Sahel, to implement responsible agricultural practices, W4 is also leading a campaign to promote # 1MillionTrees4Tunisia, a sustainable agriculture in partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture to raise public awareness of environmental challenges.

Métamorphose

Assisting women farmers in rural areas in the transition to agroecology, to fight against desertification through training and development of digital skills.

Migration & Development

Project #3: Du Pain & Des Roses

Founded in 2017, the association aims to support asylum seekers and refugees in France, promoting creative activities and the development of new social and personal skills.

In partnership with France Terre d'Asile, across its 9 centres in Ile-de-France, workshops in sustainable horticulture will be held as part of the rehabilitation programme for 90 women seeking asylum, this will help develop skills and facilitate professional reintegration back to employment. In its workshops, Du Pain and Roses exclusively uses seasonal flowers produced locally and works to bring awareness to the ecological and economic advantages of sourcing cut flowers within France.

The project uses the cut flower trade as a training programme for women asylum seekers, to learn responsible agriculture, employment skills, and encourage creativity by participating in floral design workshops to then sell bouquets to the public.

Migration & Development

Promoting the Inclusion of socio-professional women who are seeking asylum and in need of employment, through workshops creating bouquets of organic, local and seasonal flowers.

Project #4: Projeter Sans Frontières

Projet Sans Frontières is an international solidarity association that fights against poverty and the exclusion of the most vulnerable populations in developing countries.

Columbia is the second most populated country in the world, with a population of 7 million. In the district of Santa Rosa, south of Bogota, many rural populations have fled wars and conflict and are forced to live together in cramped conditions.

To help reintegrate women in these areas, since 2017, the association Projet Sans Frontières has been developing the Semons la Confiance Femmes programme, which aims to develop urban and peri-urban agriculture. Women producers are trained in organic farming and are supported in the creation of a farming association and its management. The association will support more women in agricultural techniques, which will ensure the food self-sufficiency of them, their families and surrounding communities.

Entrepreneurs of the World

Developing urban agriculture thanks to the creation of a product marketing association for biological crops grown by women in community gardens.

Goals

  • 42 women in vulnerable situations will participate in the project
  • 1 association of the Semons la confiance Femmes is created
  • 1 500m2 community garden built

Project #5: Association de Développement de l’Emploi Agricole et Rural des Hautes-Alpes

To encourage the economic opportunities of women farmers by reinforcing their technical knowledge on agroecological practices.

The French agricultural world still leaves little room for women. Women farmers wanting to run their own farms face more difficulties than men, especially to get a loan or to participate in senior positions.

Faced with this observation, the association initiated an action research project with an agroecology researcher affiliated with the University of Coventry, England, to identify a strategy. In 2017, the Ministry of Agriculture set up a target group for this project of women labourers that were labelled as an Economic Interest Group. The project aims to support these women with 3 objectives, to create a business connections for women farmers, to promote better recognition of their work, and to contribute to the development of agroecology in the area.

SOL

Boosting opportunities for women farmers by strengthening their technical knowledge of agroecological practices.

Goals

  • 20 women to benefit from one-to-one training
  • 1 digital tool created to promote the exchange of resources, services and skills
  • 1 video featuring 10 women farmers created to campaign for the role of women, within the agroecological industry
