Global Water Challenge is supporting the ongoing Water Smart Agriculture (WaSA) activities in partnership with CARE across Ghana, Malawi and Mali. Through this project, over 50,000 women smallholder farmers are being trained in WaSA practices to improved agricultural productivity in the face of climate change and water-scarce contexts.

In the Kano State of Nigeria, Global Water Challenge supported the Women Farmers Advancement Network (WOFAN) to improve water resources management and expand sustainable access to safe drinking water and sanitation services. As a core part of this project, women farmers were trained in dry season farming. Activities resulted in a dynamic shift between husband and wife farmers with the women controlling the seed supply that they produced during the dry season. Following the project, husbands would look to their wives for seed supply.

In Rwanda, Global Water Challenge supported Global Grassroots in mobilizing ten women-led water ventures in communities across Gicumbi and Gasabo Districts. Following participation in a two-week intensive training that included focus on mindfulness, conflict resolution, project development and financial management, venture participants developed their own work plans and applied for seed funding to launch their initiatives. Global Grassroots reached over 30,000 beneficiaries with water access through project activities.

Global Water Challenge partnered with Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP) in Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Uganda and Zambia. By 2020, GWC and WSUP will have support the empowerment of approximately 6,000 women through improved WASH services and employment opportunities as water kiosk and laundry block operators.
