FAO-Dimitra Clubs: Stepping stones for action in rural areas

This video is part of a series exploring the impact of FAO-Dimitra Clubs, a successful gender-transformative approach developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). It highlights the Clubs’ approach, implementation, functioning modalities and key features.

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, 1600 FAO-Dimitra Clubs have been set up in Burundi, DR Congo, Ghana, Mali, Niger and Senegal.

The series was produced by Esprit Libre Production and FAO-Dimitra.
