GrowHer.org is a microsite that provides women agripreneurs the platform to upskill themselves with useful tools and new skills, read inspiring stories of other women in agriculture making their mark, and to collaborate and attend events across the value chain – creating sustainable food systems for generations to come.
On 31 of March 2021 at 7:00PM- 9:00PM Manila Time, aligned with the celebration of International Women’s Month, GrowHer.org will be launched in the Philippines. The launch will be remarkable as it will be the first in-country launch of the platform. The program aims to be an avenue for collaboration among civil society groups, government agencies, and the private sector in supporting the GrowHer microsite through: contributing content, sharing resources, and partnership opportunities for women in agriculture.
The launch will be led by AGREA, Corteva Agriscience, and Grow Asia. It will be supported by the Netherlands Embassy in the Philippines – a major supporter of our agriculture and gender equity initiatives, Department of Agriculture, SPARK Philippines, Philippine Commission on Women, UN Women, FAO Philippines,Philippines Partnership for Sustainable Agriculture (PPSA) and Go Negosyo.
The launch will complement our 2020 program entitled How Women Feed The World: A Digital Talk on Women in Agriculture. The webinar complemented the conclusions of Roundtable on Gender Equity and Empowerment last 2019, and support for Magna Carta of Women in Agriculture. It also presented current opportunities and investment for women in agriculture on the following key areas: education, sustainable livelihood, peace and security, and health and nutrition.
