Expanding opportunities for Ukrainian women in agriculture with an innovative educational programme initiated by Corteva Agriscience in partnership with UNFPA, FAO and others
Our Action Ukraine team has just completed the announcement for the launch of an educational grant programme for female farmers living in rural areas for client Corteva Agriscience – a first of its kind in the market. Most significantly, it’s aimed at helping rural women that represent a commonly overlooked audience in the country. The programme combines a training hub with a grant competition and the entire initiative has been translated to an online format. The innovative programme is being funded by the international agricultural R&D company Corteva Agriscience in partnership with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), Center for Corporate Social Responsibility and the All-Ukrainian Council of Female Farmers NGO. As the organisational partner, our Action team was responsible for the launch, including website and social media. The aim of the programme is to expand educational opportunities and access to finance for women living in rural areas and engaged in agriculture for improved quality of life.
