In honor of Thrive, our new food security campaign, I decided to dig up some photos of farmers and farm workers in Africa. It may surprise you that many of these workers are hardworking women who — in addition to raising their children and caring for their families — till the fields, sow the seeds and basically, do all the backbreaking labor it requires to bring food from farm to table. As you look at these photos, please reflect on the importance of sustainable agriculture in Africa, then support them by signing our petition here.
Farmers, females…and FRIENDS.
Please remember to take action for these farmers and tell G8 leaders to make a bold plan to end global hunger by investing in sustainable agriculture programs. Sign our petition here.
