Our Future: Woman Farmer Foundation
The Woman Farmer Foundation mandate is to improve women’s incomes and promoting sustainable livelihoods through agriculture including livestock, dairy, poultry, piggery, vegetables just to mention a few.
WFF is also responsible for organizing the annual Women Farmer of the year competition (WOFACO) which encourages participation of women and youth in agribusiness. The winner of the competition is awarded with input prizes to sustain and improve her farm business.
The Foundation focuses strictly on women and youth empowerment, especially those based in the rural communities. Our mandate is to empower, equip, promote and advance the interests of Swazi women in the agricultural sector from subsistence level to commercial, especially the women in the rural areas, thereby subsequently increasing food security and mitigating the issues of poverty and hunger in the country.
The ultimate desire is to affect and touch communities in all the 55 constituencies of Swaziland through practical, innovative and sustainable intervention.WFF therefore endeavours to empower women through expanding their knowledge base, information dissemination, training and education in farming. We contribute to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by cutting across a number of consortiums within the NGO sector.
