WAS is a collaboration of women-led family farmer organizations in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Guinea, Mali, and Senegal. WAS is building a movement to strengthen women’s political learning and development.

Member groups recognize that chronic problems of hunger and landlessness will continue to exist unless we replace the Green Revolution and corporate-controlled agriculture with agroecology, a framework that values local farmers’ knowledge and contribution to feed themselves and surrounding communities. Through the combination of local knowledge and interdisciplinary technical expertise, agroecology builds a food system that is socially just, environment friendly and economic viable.
