FAO-Dimitra Clubs in DR Congo: Food security and nutrition

The video demonstrates the key role of the clubs in the Province of Tshopo (DR Congo) for improving food security and nutrition and promoting gender equality for men, women and youth. 

“Food security and Nutrition” is part of a series that illustrates the impact of FAO-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, DR Congo, Ghana, Niger and Senegal.
