Share This Page

Banyan Global is a sub-contractor on the five-year United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Feed the Future Ethiopia Value Chain Activity. Led by Fintrac, the activity contributes to the Government of Ethiopia’s objective to improve agricultural productivity and commercialization of smallholder farmers. It emphasizes increasing nutrition-sensitive productivity of targeted value chains inclusive of women and youth; making market systems and trade more inclusive; and improving the enabling environment in support of agricultural transformation. The activity specifically builds upon existing advances and addresses constraints in women’s access to farm inputs, credit, technology, information, markets, training, and leadership opportunities. Banyan Global is leading the activity’s gender integration work, including conducting a gender analysis, designing and implementing gender equality trainings for staff and local partners, designing a gender implementation plan, and providing technical assistance on gender equality and women’s economic empowerment for the duration of the activity.
