Women Farmers and Business Owners Becoming Economically Independent

Last year with the support of Irish Aid and the Irish public, Oxfam Ireland reached 12.2 million people across 12 countries.

Reaching 12.2 million includes

  • Direct support like providing tools and training to help grow livelihoods or clean fresh water for people forced to flee
  • Indirect support like mass media campaigns to challenge socials norms that contribute to poverty and inequality or raise awareness about how to stay safe during emergencies.

In Kasungu, Malawi with the support of Irish Aid, we were able to help women farmers and small business owners to become economically independent.

Thanks to your support, communities in Malawi increased their agriculture production and are able to make a fair profit.

The cooperative movement produced a revolution in Irish agriculture and society and now the same leap forward is being felt by some of the world’s poorest farmers in Malawi.
