This Women’s Food Security In International Development program takes place in St. Cloud.

Women are key to international development. Empowering women through health care, education, and finance results in better lives for themselves, their families, and communities. But what happens when people are unable to provide basic nutrition for their families? Women, in particular, are prevented from performing the economic and social activities that would otherwise lift their families from poverty, causing further dependence rather than self-sufficiency and prosperity.

A woman in a yellow shirt, with dark hair in a messy up-do, pays close attention as carefully she prunes a tree.
