The power of women in the fight against hunger

As more women are empowered to become community health workers, they help an entire generation grow up strong.

Everywhere we look, women are tackling the world’s toughest challenges — from poverty to healthcare to hunger. When it comes to tackling hunger, women are among our strongest allies.

And a single woman like Hawa, a community health worker in Mali, has the power to change her community for the better.

From a community health worker, change spreads: from mother to child, neighbor to neighbor, community to community, generation to generation.

On International Women’s Day, join us in celebrating and honoring powerful women leading the fight to end hunger.
