We Help the Women Who Feed the World

“Imagine a world where the hands that till the soil and nurture life are often the same hands that go to bed hungry at night. This is the reality for millions of women who toil tirelessly to feed their families and communities, yet face insurmountable challenges like gender inequity, limited resources, and the relentless grip of hunger and malnutrition.

345 million people faced starvation in 2023, and that number continues to grow creating a global emergency of unprecedented magnitude. The numberof people facing acute famine doubled since the start of the pandemic. 

-David Beasley, executive director of the UN World Food Programme-

At Regenerative Farms we know all too well that famine and land degradation are intimately linked. But we also know the solutions are too. That’s why our mission is to support the women who feed the world. Amidst this growing onslaught of impacts making it harder and harder for women to feed their families, there shines a beacon of hope: Regenerative Farms.

-About Closing the Gender Gap by GASFP who wrote in 2024:

“Women—who produce more than half of the world’s food—are the beating heart of agricultural productivity. Yet most women farmers toil in relative obscurity, shut out from land ownership, lacking market price information and agricultural inputs. They tend to have smaller plots of land and have to travel long distances to market. As a result, many female farmers are less productive and miss out on valuable earnings, money that could feed their families and educate their children” and

-About Global Development’s Glaring Blind Spot: The Power of Smallholder Women Farmers by FoodTank who wrote in 2023: “Smallholder farmers produce up to 80 percent of the food supply in Asian and sub-Saharan African countries, and women are crucial producers on those farms. They steward their animals and land with minimal resources, striving for sustainability, nutritious food, and financial security. It is an uphill battle, made worse by the combined impacts of climate change, conflict and a cost-of-living crisis that has plunged 828 million people across the world into chronic hunger.

This hunger crisis and rising rates of global poverty cannot be solved without the economic empowerment of women smallholder farmers—yet they are seldom the primary focus of development initiatives that aim to end poverty or improve food security.”
