Our Efforts in Côte d’Ivoire
We collaborate with partners from the public and private sectors to improve the economic and social well-being of vulnerable communities in sectors that employ or involve women and marginalized groups. Through the Accelerating Women’s Empowerment program, we strengthen the capacity of small businesses, operators, organizations and institutions operating in health and nutrition, agribusiness and agroforestry.

How We’ve Made a Difference in Côte d’Ivoire
▪ With training in agricultural practices, rural women with the Fondation Marie Esther are improving their yields. They are raising awareness of local and organic consumption and accessing new marketing and distribution channels for their produce.
▪ Cooperative Amougnan learned to use organic fertilizer and are raising awareness of the important connection between organic farming and long-term food security.
▪ We collaborated with ONG Vie & Santé, an association engaged in the prevention, screening and management of diseases affecting women and children, to improve organizational, communication and fund development skills.
