    With UN Women, FAO,IFAD and WFP coming together to reiterate the need and how to accelerate Womens economic empowerment, this is a contribution towards achieving more than one SDG goal as it includes creating gender equality, good health & well being, reducing poverty and hunger. Replicating this skills training, capacity and leadership building programme in other rural areas globally can have a great impact on global prosperity.

    The RWEE is really a crucial activity that empowers women not only economically, but politically and socially as well. Great job @UNWomen, FAO, IFAD, WFP.
