Partner: Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA)

Description:

The Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA) and the African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) agreed to collaborate to support capacity development activities in selected Sub-Saharan African countries within the context of South-South cooperation. BADEA AND ACBF noted that initiatives for integrating women into agricultural programs and strategies had not been sufficiently effective in empowering women in agriculture on a sustainable basis, for transformative changes in their livelihoods, food security of their households and communities and sustained gender equality and development in other areas of national development. The project covers a three-month period between March and May, 2020. Under the project, CISANET was contracted by ACBF to manage seed funding grants provided to five women cooperatives in Malawi.
