Ethiopia is the second most populous country in Africa with approximately 83 percent living in rural areas, reliant on agriculture for food and income. More than 50% of these are women.

Correcting the gender balance in agriculture sectors would reduce global food shortage by at least 17 percent. This is our contribution to the same, in Ethiopia.
