AWARD is listed among 14 top global initiatives that are helping women to overcome the challenges of reproductive health, economic empowerment, food security, social justice, and the environment, according toFood Tank.

Food Tank announced the list of selected organizations at “Women Deliver”, a conference held recently in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. AWARD, which strengthens the research and leadership skills of African women working in agricultural research and development, is one of only two Africa-based programs on the list.

 “These 14 organizations are working to empower women in the food system. They’re giving hope to women everywhere, and Ellen Gustafson and I hope that they will give hope to you, too,” saidDanielle Nierenberg, Food Tank co-founder.

Food Tank aims to offer solutions and environmentally sustainable ways of alleviating hunger, obesity, and poverty by creating a network of connections and information sources with various stakeholders in the food sector from farmers to policy makers.

The Women Deliver conference brought together women from around the world to discuss various topics affecting communities and their livelihoods.
