Rural women, the majority of whom depend on natural resources and agriculture for their livelihoods, make up over a quarter of the total world population. In Cameroon , rural women represent approximately 43 per cent of the agricultural labor force, and produce, process and prepare much of the food available, thereby giving them primary responsibility for food security.
Bearing in mind that 76 per cent of the extreme poor live in rural areas, ensuring rural women’s access to productive agricultural resources contributes to decreasing world hunger and poverty, and make rural women critical for the success of the new Sustainable Development goal.
Our mission to celebrate women this year cut across all women in various occupation , 15th October we join all the women in the south west Region to celebrate the rural woman. Kudos to all the rural  women in Cameroon for putting food on our table.
