Dimitra Clubs in the Democratic Republic of the Congo: Food Security and Nutrition

In the province of Tshopo in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, FAO-Dimitra Clubs have played a key role in improving food security and nutrition and in promoting gender equality for men, women and youth.

This video is part of a series entitled "Impact of FAO-Dimitra Clubs: Empowering Rural People." The series, produced by Esprit Libre Production and FAO-Dimitra, illustrates the impact of Dimitra Clubs, a successful gender-transformative approach developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

FAO-Dimitra Clubs are groups of rural women and men who decide to meet regularly to discuss the challenges they face in their daily lives, make decisions together and take collective action to solve community problems with their own means. Since 2006, 1500 FAO-Dimitra Clubs have been set up in Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana, the Niger and Senegal.
