International day of rural women statement

Padare joins the world in commemorating International Day of rural women; Padare acknowledges that rural women play a critical role in the rural economies of both developed and developing countries. In most parts of the developing world they participate in crop production and livestock care, provide food, water for their families, and engage in off-farm activities to improve their families’ livelihoods. In addition, they carry out vital functions in caring for children, older persons and the sick. As men let’s take time to reflect on how we can play a role in creating safe spaces for our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and daughters in the rural areas. Rural women have for long been subjugated to unequal access to and control of resources, limited access to Sexual reproductive health care and limited access to education. Let’s join hands and make our voices heard in advocating for equal access to and control of resources by rural women.

Men lets unite in the fight against all forms of violence against women and girls
