We Have One Goal
Promoting Gender Enviromental Friendly Agriculture.
The name NIWAAFA represents the NIGERIAN WOMEN AGRO ALLIED FARMERS ASSOCIATION, comprising of all women farmers in both agro cropping, processing, fishery, and marketing. The association was formed in the year 2006 by four women farmers from the major tribes of Nigeria, South-South, southeast, southwest, and north-central.
These women have had various challenges as Farmers, ranging from lack of appropriate land for sustainable Agriculture to, lack of funds for the acquisition of improved seed, tools, and Labor. This association, therefore, was formed to reach out and coordinate these women, train and inform them of easier ways of modern Agriculture, sensitize them on-farm management, and integrated farming. In addition, build their capacity for accessing micro credits to increase their farms and growth towards better and sustainable Agriculture.
Our vision is to be the umbrella of all Women farmers in Nigeria, a pivot for the advancement of Agriculture in Nigeria towards achieving Vision 20 2020 and Millennium development goals.
Our mission is to train up women leaders in Agriculture and position women to lead in the Nations’s drive for food security and industrialization.
