How Moroccan rural women work on their future (video)

The video shows how United Nations Women supports local projects on the Moroccan countryside.

In the video comes Leila Harris to the word, who left Casablanca with her husband in the countryside (Dar Bouazza). They inspired other women there to, like herself, own products. They are no longer dependent on products they buy on the souk, but feed their families now with products they have grown on their own land.

The climate changed, just as in the rest of the world, also in Morocco. Due to lack of rainfall there are longer periods of drought. To solve this problem women have a drop irrigation system installed and they use their own seeds, which are more resistant to drought.

United Nations Women supports local non-profit organizations that provide agricultural training for these women.
