Elevating the Voices of Women in Agriculture (EVWA) 2024

Deadline: June 30th, 2024 | Fund: $ 5,000 | Elevating the Voices of Women in Agriculture (EVWA) 2024

The Elevating the Voices of Women in Agriculture (EVWA) Campaign aims to raise awareness of the lived realities of women farmers in Africa. With the EVWA Changemakers Campaign and the EVWA Council, the BKMC is on a mission to highlight and galvanize action for the empowerment of women farmers in Africa. Women account for nearly half of the world’s smallholder farmers. In Africa, they produce 70% of the continent’s food. Yet, they are the most vulnerable members of the farming community, facing obstacles in accessing land, finances, education, and more, because of gender inequalities and our changing climate.

Gain global visibility, expand your network, and get the chance to win the prestigious $5,000 EVWA Champion Award! As this year’s EVWA Champion, you will also be featured in a professional documentary showcasing you and your initiative. Don’t miss this opportunity—nominate yourself by Sunday, June 30th!
