Côte d’Ivoire


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.

Our Focus

Strengthening Agribusiness

Our program provides technical assistance to improve production, productivity and income generation among women farmers and owners of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), especially in the cassava value chain.

Enhancing Health and Nutrition

We’re strengthening the capacity of our partners who scale up sanitation and hygiene practices in food production and water management, promoting food security and community well-being.

Helping Agroforestry Thrive

We support institutions and organizations working toward the sustainable management of natural resources in order to address environmental threats like deforestation.

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.
