Interview with Madame Rachel Ninga-Wong-Mallo (in FRENCH)
Madame Rachel Ninga-Wong-Mallo is the head of Association des Femmes Rurales de Batangafo pour le Développement (Association of the development of rural women from Batangafo).
In the Central African Republic, agriculture provides the main source of livelihoods and income for rural women, particularly in Batangafo. During the conflict their productive assets have been looted or destroyed, leaving them unable to produce essential crops.
Thanks to a multidimensional support provided by FAO, the main partner of the Association des Femmes Rurales de Batangafo pour le Développement, women have been able to improve their livelihoods through the resumption of agricultural activities to ensure food production despite theongoing violence.
