Dimitra Community Listeners' Clubs for Food Security and Women's leadership

Gasseda - Niger

The FAO Dimitra community listeners’ clubs are groups of women, men and young people – mixed or not – who decide to organize themselves so as to work together to bring about changes in their communities. They meet regularly to discuss the challenges they face in their daily lives, make decisions and take action to resolve their problems.

Set up in several sub-Saharan African countries - DR Congo, Niger, Mauritania, Senegal, Burundi and Ghana - the Dimitra listeners’ clubs have had great success wherever they have been established.

This video shows the activities of the clubs in Gasseda.
