Since July 2016, RAIN, with partner CARE International have been working in Ghana, Malawi, and Mali to empower 40,000 women smallholder farmers through training on best practices and techniques around water resources management for increased agricultural yield in water-scarce contexts. This quarter, USAID made a commitment to scale project activities and incorporate menstrual hygiene management-focused dialogues through WADA. This project expansion is expected to reach an additional 10,000 women with increased economic opportunities that will, in turn, positively impact for their families and communities.
