Moms Feed the World

Description

Moms around the world raise and prepare food that makes their children healthy and their communities more prosperous.

About 43 percent of the farm workers in developing countries are women. If they had the same level of access to productive resources as men, their increased production could lift as many as 150 million people out of hunger.

Tanzanian farmer Nagenjwa Naftali, 55, looks over her lush field of "Saro 5" rice with a World Vision agriculture advisor.  Last year she cultivated a small plot of Saro 5 rice as a test. The results were so good, this year she used the improved variety provided by World Vision for all her rice production.

She expects to earn extra money from a bumper harvest that she’ll use to support her five children's education.
