FAO Goodwill Ambassador, Anggun
Rural women must lead the fight against hunger
Investing in women farmers is the way forward in the fight against hunger. On the day of the election of the new FAO Director General, Action Aid, Oxfam and Wocan together with many other civil society organizations urge FAO and its member States to put women at the center of FAO activities. In a video released today, FAO Goodwill Ambassador Anggun Cipta Sasmi explains that women farmers can save up to 100-150 more million people from hunger if they are provided with adequate resources. The three organizations call on the new Director General to promote women’s leadership and expertise to ensure everyone has always enough to eat.
Anggun (Anggun Cipta Sasmi), after a tremendous success in her homeland, started an amazing international career. She made history for being the first Asian artist to break into the international music scene by releasing her first international album "Snow on the Sahara" in Europe, Asia and America.
