On International Women’s Day, women around the world join together in celebration of the intelligence, strength, courage and beauty of women. Since 1908 this has been a day to celebrate the achievements of women around the world without regard to their national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political differences.

This year, we join together with our supporters to celebrate the economic and social achievements of women. We honor the women who work to overcome the food crisis in their communities and put food on the table for their families. These women are not waiting for a bailout but are instead learning the skills and techniques of sustainable organic farming to feed their families and support themselves.
