Film: Dimitra community listeners' clubs for food security and women's leadership

The FAO-Dimitra community listeners' clubs enable rural communities to strengthen their capacities, their self-confidence and take action on their environment. Thanks to the listeners' clubs, women, men and youth organize themselves, share their concerns, look for solutions together and take collective action.

This film, produced in September 2013, shows the activities of the clubs in Gasseda, Niger.


Dimitra CD-ROM 2012

 

Following the 2004 and 2008 editions, Dimitra has produced a new CD-ROM which contains all of the information to be found on the Dimitra website and on-line databaseas of 31 December 2011, in English and French.

The Dimitra on-line database lists detailed information on organisations based in Africa together with descriptions of those development projects and initiatives they are involved in which actively concern rural populations – and more particularly women – and use a gender or women-specific approach. The aim of the database is to provide a set of best practices and firsthand experiences that may give inspiration to others working in the same field and strengthen possibilities for mutual exchange and cooperation. 

The aim of the CD-ROM is to facilitate dissemination of the information collected by the project to those who do not have easy Internet access.

Film: Rural Women in Katanga

This 7-minute film was produced in 2010 by Vicanos-Club for the FAO-Dimitra project, with financial support from the King Baudouin Foundation. It concerns the situation of rural women in Katanga (DRC) and the activities of FAO-Dimitra and its partner REFED-Katanga to give a voice to rural women and thus improve their situation and food security.

Watch the film (available in English and French, in high and low resolutions)


CD-ROM of the Dimitra Phase 2 Relaunch Workshop

This CD-ROM gathered all of the ideas, contributions and proposals of the Dimitra Phase 2 Relaunch Workshop which took place in Brussels in October 2002. The objectives of the workshop were to strengthen the links between the partners in the Dimitra network; to come together to develop best practices and 'recipes' for information and communication for development with a gender approach; and to strengthen bonds with civil society actors and ministries.
