Together we can kickstart a food and farming revolution
ActionAid is working with communities and partner organisation ‘VARD‘ (Voluntary Association for Rural Development). A farming cooperative has been established to train women on seed preservation and sowing techniques which have helped families who previously suffered from hunger. Women have formed self help groups and ActionAid has helped them set up income generating projects such as cattle rearing and gardening schemes. For more information, visit www.actionaid.org.
The G8 comprises the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia and the United States.
