In a landmark move that promises to reshape the landscape of agriculture in Kenya, the Association of Women in Agricultures Kenya (AWAK) has officially joined forces with The Food and Land Use (FOLU) Kenya Coalition. This strategic collaboration marks a significant milestone in AWAK’s ongoing commitment to championing sustainable practices and empowering women farmers across the country.
With a rich legacy of advocating for gender equality and inclusive agricultural practices, AWAK has consistently stood at the forefront of Kenya’s agricultural sector. By partnering with the FOLU network, an international alliance dedicated to transforming food and land use systems for a sustainable future, AWAK aims to amplify its impact and drive positive change on an even larger scale.
As part of the FOLU network, AWAK will have access to a vast pool of knowledge, resources, and expertise. This collaboration presents a unique opportunity for AWAK to share best practices, learn from global leaders, and harness innovative solutions for the benefit of Kenyan women in agriculture. The organization will actively engage in dialogues, policy advocacy, and capacity-building initiatives, ensuring that the voices of women farmers are heard and their needs addressed.
The FOLU network has gained widespread recognition for its comprehensive approach to sustainable land use and food systems. By embracing a holistic vision that encompasses environmental stewardship, social inclusivity, and economic prosperity, FOLU has successfully united diverse stakeholders, including governments, businesses, civil society, and farmers, to work towards a common goal. AWAK’s membership within this esteemed coalition will strengthen its position as a catalyst for change and a powerful advocate for gender-responsive and sustainable agricultural policies in Kenya.
As AWAK steps into this new chapter of collaboration with FOLU, it remains dedicated to fostering an enabling environment where women farmers can thrive. Through training programs, mentorship opportunities, and access to markets and financing, AWAK will continue to empower women to take their rightful place as leaders in the agricultural sector. By leveraging the collective strength of FOLU, AWAK is poised to make an even greater impact in breaking down barriers and creating a more equitable and sustainable future for Kenyan agriculture.
