Smallholder Agriculture and Climate Change

Nearly half of all smallholder farmers are female, providing 70% of the world's food and yet women own less than 20% of the world's land. Communities that give their daughters the same opportunities as their sons, are more peaceful, prosperous and develop faster. On farms, climate change is reducing crop yields, the nutritional quality of major cereals, and lowering livestock productivity. Our work improves mitigation and adaptation to climate change whilst helping girls and women living in poverty find their purpose, passion, and pathway to a thriving future.

Our groundbreaking work in local philanthropy empowers local women organizations and social enterprises to close the gender inequality gap across healthcare, business enterprises, and social organizations.  
"As a dedicated feminist organization, we advocate for unconditional recognition, protection and promotion of the economic rights of women and girls by all stakeholders, and in effective gender transformative leadership values and principles. We are motivated by the belief that all human beings must fully enjoy the rights and freedoms enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), and the African Union Protocol on Gender and Development, among other. These human rights instruments affirm that ‘women’s rights are human rights’ and recognize the inherent rights of every person whether male or female. In this respect, JWF stands for Women’s Human Rights".
