For the 12 Days of Christmas, I am going to highlight an individual, organization or business that does great work to promote women and girls, whether that is in the political, social or business realm.
For the first day of Christmas, (Partridge in a Pear Tree), Id like to highlight Women Thrive Worldwide, which works with policy makers on a number of issues including women and agriculture.
As our globes population reaches 7 billion, there hundreds of millions of people who live in hunger. Women Thrive works with policy makers to ensure that women small-scale, subsistence farmers have the same access to productive resources as men. Experts say that this simple step could increase yields on womens farms by 20-30% and lift 100 to 150 million people out of hunger.
