Projects

ADESAF

Project 1: Farms without Boarders

To secure the economic empowerment of female farmers through the restructuring of a local dairy industry.

In Burkina Faso, where 80% of the population live from agriculture and breeding, the local milk production competes with imported powdered milk, which is 30% cheaper. The families of local livestock farmers financially suffer from this, and particularly the women who work on the farms milking the cows and who sell the milk. The project carried out by Farms without Boarders, and the local association Action for the Promotion of Local Initiatives, aims to strengthen the skills of herders in the province of Oubritenga. Located in the Central Plateau region, local farmers need more technical skills, knowledge and business guidance to help generate a sustainable income. 150 herder families will receive training to improve their farming, milking techniques and the cultivation of crops for animals. And a dairy cooperative will be built to provide farmers with the means to process and sell their milk independently.

ADESAF

For the past 20 years, Farms without Borders has been supporting vulnerable rural populations and aims to improve food security in West Africa, Northwest Africa and Haiti.

Objectives

  • 100 households of cattle breeders and 50 female goat breeders trained in animal farming, milking and dairy retail
  • 3 women trained in milk processing
  • 1 local dairy cooperative created

AVSF

Project 2: Yobalema

Training women in agroecological practices and helping them to build a vegetable garden.

In Senegal, in the region of Rufisque, the West Coast is impacted by climate change affecting both agricultural and fisheries production. The food insecurity experienced by the residents is exacerbated by the reduction in employment. This has caused many fishermen to migrate to the cities and find work to support their families. 37 fishermen's wives from the village of Kelle have united to support one another, and to share their agricultural products they cultivate. The Yobalema association has provided aid to this group of people, to help develop a sustainable and profitable agricultural project. The association will train women in agroecology and permaculture through practical workshops and courses. This project will promote food security in the village and help ease their economic difficulties.

AVSF

Established in 2014, Yobalema aims to promote a business relationship between France and Senegal.

Objectives

  • 37 women trained in agroecology

ESSOR

Project 3: Food2Rue

To promote the socio-professional integration of women into employment by providing sustainable training methods in the food industry.

In the Ile-de-France region, women struggle with inequality at work. This effects their career opportunities and prospects, this inequality effects basic living such as access to better, healthier foods such as organic produce. The association Food2Rue created "The Panamanian woman" in 2018. It is a solidarity food hall, located in the 14th arrondissement of Paris, which has a food counter and a grocery store, with seasonal, organic and local products. The shop is managed by a team of 14 women, who have struggled with inequality, they are able to gain the professional experience and skills as part of this project.

ESSOR

Food2rue is a workshop that works with women to gain professional skills in hospitality and business, with the aim of promoting sustainable initiatives towards the environment.

  • 180 meals cooked and sold every day
  • 1 food hall that is environmentally friendly and supportive of solidarity

FNAB

Project 4: WECF

Supporting female entrepreneurs in sustainable agriculture and food.

Since 2011 in the rural area of Haute-Savoie, WECF France supports 50 female entrepreneurs to help develop their businesses, thanks to the regional network "Rural women". Following a study carried out in 2015 of a hundred women from the region, the association found that they face financial pressures and lack support for their businesses, having little or no access to advice or guidance. WECF France wishes to take on a further 50 members, to strengthen the "Rural Women" network. The aims of the network are to help improve the income of female entrepreneurs and guarantee food security in the region, while promoting the use of sustainable agricultural practices.

FNAB

Created in 2008, WECF France is committed to the promotion of gender equality and women's involvement in environmental and sustainable development policies.

Objectives

  • 100 women entrepreneurs to receive guidance and support
  • 1 published programme on sustainable food
  • 1 online platform created dedicated to support the "Rural Women" network

Project 5: Fleurs de Cocagne

To help unemployed women regain professional skills though market gardening and organic horticulture.

Fleurs de Cocagne have been a success, in terms of social, professional and financial support for unemployed women and retail profits from the initiative. This also demonstrates a consumer demand for responsible and sustainable trade.

The association aims to strengthen its ecological approach and by making its production site a "green showroom", with two main aims, biodiversity and social integration. The project has a number of construction plans to develop the site, such as a new storage building, restoration of the well and cultivating the land, as well as the installation of greenhouses. Also there are plans to build educational vegetable gardens that will be open to the general public, schools and businesses to learn about biodiversity. The women managing the green site will gain professional skills and experience, and will be in charge of visitors and presenting Fleurs de Cocagne's activities.

Ishpingo

Since 2014, Fleurs de Cocagne has been offering socio-professional support to vulnerable people - of which 70% are women – through organic horticultural and market garden production in Essonne, France.

Objectives

  • 15 women integrated with work experience
  • 500 people made aware of agroecological practices
  • 1 "green showroom" for demonstrating agroecological practices

Project 6: Migration & Development

To promote sustainable farming methods and strengthen the role of women in agroecological practices

In Morocco, in the isolated rural areas of the Atlas and Anti-Atlas Mountains. Families are dependent on agriculture and are struggling to move beyond the subsistence economy and are affected by climate change. Combined with harmful human practices of intensive agricultural production, these factors degrade living conditions of the population and endanger natural resources. Since 2016, Migration & Development has been running a project to develop agroecological practices and strengthen the position of women in the agricultural transition in the Souss-Massa region. The first phases of the project have enabled 45 female farmers to be trained in agroecological practices and the management of farms. The association now wishes to guarantee the empowerment of these female farmers with the stability of their income by integrating their production into a regional market circuit. The project also includes the construction of a water reservoir and a well, as well as a promoting agroecological practice throughout the region.

Re-Belle

Established in 1986, Migration & Development carries out development projects in Morocco with aims in sustainable agriculture and environment, local economic development, governance and territorial animation, and international solidarity.
