The spirit of empowerment and innovation in African agriculture was palpable earlier today as the Association of Women in Agriculture Kenya (AWAK) took center stage at the Africa Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) Summit 2023. Our esteemed National Executive Chairlady, Ms. Judy Matu, had the distinct honor of moderating the “Investing in Women” AGRF side event, a gathering that illuminated the pivotal role of women in agribusiness across the continent.
Hosted by the Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund (The AECF), an organization committed to supporting innovative enterprises in agribusiness, the event provided a unique platform for AWAK to showcase its dedication to advancing the cause of women in agriculture.
Ms. Judy Matu, in her role as moderator, skillfully steered discussions that resonated with the aspirations of countless women entrepreneurs in the agricultural sector. The event shed light on the transformative initiatives undertaken by The AECF in bolstering Women-led Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) across Africa.
“The Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund is making waves of positive change in the lives of women in agriculture, and AWAK is delighted to be part of this journey,” remarked Ms. Matu. “Today’s discussions underscore the fact that when we invest in women, we invest in the sustainable future of agriculture on our continent.”
The event resonated with the crowd, highlighting the tremendous potential of women-led SMEs in agriculture. AWAK’s participation served as a testament to its unwavering commitment to elevating the voices and capabilities of women in the Kenyan agricultural landscape.
As we gather in Tanzania for this influential summit, AWAK stands as a beacon of hope and empowerment for women in agriculture. Our partnership with organizations like The AECF further solidifies our dedication to creating an inclusive and equitable agricultural sector in Kenya and beyond.
The AGRF Summit 2023 continues to be a pivotal moment in the journey towards a greener, more sustainable, and gender-inclusive agricultural future for Africa. AWAK remains resolute in its mission to uplift women in agriculture, making strides toward a brighter, more prosperous tomorrow for all.
Stay tuned for more updates as AWAK continues to champion the cause of women in agriculture, making waves of change across the continent. 🌍🌾 #AWAK #AGRF2023 #WomenInAgriculture #EmpowermentInAgribusiness
