Please donate at yakotewomenfarmers.org

The Yakote Women Farmers Association is made up of approximately 150 women who live in and near the village of Yakote in the far northeastern corner of Ghana. It was formed in 2000 with the U.S. nonprofit formed in 2006 with the goal of supporting rural village economic development through grants and micro loans to improve agricultural productivity, business training, family health and nutrition, increased educational opportunities, and improved sanitation facilities. This is accomplished through empowerment of women who wish to operate small, agricultural-based businesses, which in turn provides extra income to support their families.
