MORE ON OUR WORK
ZaWARD’s work is intended to contribute to boosting agriculture in Zambia as a way of reducing poverty and increasing household incomes. Direct beneficiaries will include smallholder farmers that will benefit from activities such as applied research, training and workshops in various disciplines of agriculture based on the farmers’ needs. Other intended beneficiaries are young women and girls in Universities, colleges and upper primary schools who will receive early mentorship and career guidance as well as exposure to ZaWARD networks. The aim of mentoring the young women and girls is to increase the number of women scientists and generally women who aspire to be in positions of decision making. The members of the association will also benefit from the visibility as well as platform to carry out collaborative research and publications that will increase their authority in their various disciplines as researchers. ZaWARD members will also have an opportunity to access research funding through networks that will be established.
