NAWFA is an organisation with a membership of around
48,000 female farmers, working in over 1,000 Gambian
villages. It was previously committed to a 5 year development
plan (2007-2011) on combined livestock and crop production,
marketing and processing.
The aim of the program was to encourage commercially
viable agriculture and food security among women farmers
in order to remove them from subsistence agriculture
and onto economic self-sufficiency.
The various areas it focuses on are oilseeds and cereals,
agricultural produce marketing, capacity building, crop
production techniques, value added processing, rearing
of chickens and small ruminants such as goats and sheep
as well as savings and credit cooperative schemes.
