“Nature is the mother of everything, its no coincidence She’s referred to as Mother. Earth gives life, Women give life. We are seeking complimentarity, our work is not valued as highly as that of men.”
“We have the right to work and feed ourselves with our own seeds. We should not have to depend on food from abroad. We have traditional knowledge to feed ourselves and our people in our countries.”
