Ukulhas Island sowing the seeds for women’s empowerment

Sowing the seeds for women’s empowerment

Here is an innovative method of farming, and it’s driven by the women of AA. Ukulhas. In this inspiring initiative by the Women’s Development Committee of AA. Ukulhas and Ukulhas Council, they tackle several sustainable development challenges in the island community. This farming project is supported by a medium grant of the Mangroves for the Programme (MFF), Co-Chaired by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and International Union for Conservation (IUCN). The project is not only providing a livelihood opportunity for many women who have lost their income sources with the changing times, but also helping them to eat healthy and locally. This method of growing crops uses less chemical and fertilizers.
