SLAE Foundation plans to interact with 2000 rural women farmers on climate-adapted resilient food systems in Cameroon. The project will train 920 women through innovative crop farming necessary for improved food security, increased income, and natural ecosystem preservation. The project will use vegetative methods to empower farmers on tree production while protecting dry farmlands and fighting global climate change. The project is going to be participatory with farmers ready to adapt and develop their own local farming best practices
According to the planet Bank, poverty in Cameroon has increased in rural areas from 52.1% to 56.8%. a method to scale back extreme poverty in these areas is to enhance rural livelihoods by increased farm yields for food security and increased income. With global climate change causing massive loss of agricultural biodiversity, this project will provide solutions to those agricultural challenges while preserving natural ecosystems
The project will empower and improve livelihoods for 2000 rural forest-dependent women on resilient climate-adapted farming best practices and increase the role they play in supporting their households. it’ll reduce the gender gap between male and feminine income, ensuring that society gains from improved food systems and conservation methods. Skills and knowledge are going to be acquired through training and network exchanges among rural women farmer groups
The project will benefit 2000 rural women farmers directly and 5000 farmer household members indirectly. Training and dissemination of data on resilient food systems with multiplier effects are anticipated to indirectly reach 20000 farmer households within the next 3 years. The project will improve livelihoods for 2000 women, their households, and forest-dependent people, increase food security and conserve natural resources. At the end of this project, women’s revenue will improve also thus increasing living standard for the family
