She is Her Own Hero!

What makes a hero?
Here at Africa Development Promise, a hero is not only strong and courageous, but someone who gives back to their community. For us, the heroes of 2016 are the women in our agricultural collectives.
Africa Development Promise supports agricultural cooperatives where women come together to purchase a communal plot of land to plant, harvest, and commercially sell crops. This way, the women can continue their subsistence farming without much interruption as they can easily split their time between their personal and communal plots. These women are now able to become financially independent while still maintaining all their previous responsibilities. With the right partnerships–whether it is through material or financial donations, or educational workshops and training– these women can take charge of their own lives and benefit themselves, their families, and their communities. They are their own heroes!
