Malgré leur forte implication dans l’agriculture et leur rôle essentiel en matière de sécurité alimentaire au Bénin, les femmes rurales béninoises font face à une longue série de contraintes. Leurs systèmes de production demeurent traditionnels et archaïques, elles sont très peu intégrées dans les chaînes de valeur et surtout, elles n’ont pas accès à l’information à cause de l’analphabétisme et de leur méconnaissance des TIC. Les femmes rurales béninoises ont soif d’un changement social qualitatif pouvant s’opérer grâce à la contribution des médias, si davantage de visibilité est donnée à leurs activités agricoles.

Farming is in my genes, Blogger I am

Written by Thierry Lewyllie


I was raised in Kitale, Kenya’s breadbasket where I learned farming at first hand from my parents. I moved to Nairobi City when I was 18 for my studies but I still maintained a strong interest in farming. The experiences of growing up in Kitale inculcated in me a love for farming.

 



Demandes de contacts, questions et remerciements sont de plus en plus nombreux sur mon blog « Les graines de l’info ». « J'ai lu votre papier sur la transformation de cacao en beurre par Monsieur Antoine. Je suis un Ivoirien, je voudrais faire comme lui. Peut-il me prendre en stage d'une semaine, ou me former à distance ? »,  écrit un internaute dans l’espace de mon blog réservé aux commentaires. Malheureusement pour lui, je n’ai pas retrouvé les coordonnées du producteur de cacao pour les lui transmettre.

The 9 winners of the Youth in Agriculture Blog Competition (YoBloCo Awards) have been announced this evening (17 July 2014)  during the cocktail dinner organised at the International Fin4Ag Conference in Nairobi, Kenya.
