Women farmers in the Northern Region of Ghana lack access to the financial resources and agricultural inputs needed to adapt to climate change. If women had access to the same agricultural resources as men, agricultural yields could increase by 20-30% and the total number of hungry people would decrease by 12-17%. To address this gender gap, MEDA started its GROW project providing information, training, and resources to female farmers. To reach its goal of 20,000 farmers, MEDA needs a more efficient way to regularly distribute information than bi-annual in-person workshops.
