“Oxfam’s ultimate goal is to promote new agricultural practices and give greater voice to Tanzania’s women farmers.

Women make up 75 percent of Tanzania’s farmers but they often live in poverty and their contribution is rarely valued, the charity says.

The World Bank estimates that giving women farmers around the world equal access to resources, such as fertilizer and land, could increase farm yields by up to 30 percent. This would mean up to 150 million fewer people going to bed hungry every day.”
