Project Details

World Neighbours Canada Society will be testing an approach to facilitating an animal-fattening enterprise which focuses on structuring and supporting the transition to more equitable labour roles and power relations in households, particularly for women but also crucially for men, girls, and boys as they learn from and assist women in a cooperative enterprise. The proposed innovative solution will seek to advance gender equality and empower women by directly addressing patriarchal constraints and by working to improve women’s access to, and control over assets, which can support food security in rural Gourma.
