Build Sustainable Opportunities for Women Farmers in Armenia

The women of Armenia’s villages are raising their voices to say: Size does matter!–when it comes to building bigger greenhouses that will make their communities sustainable. Women, like the ones featured in our campaign video, are beginning to speak up about their right to be active members of society–socially, politically, and economically–and they want to let the other villages all over Armenia know that with hard work, anything is possible. Together, we can help women farmers take action to provide more for themselves and their community.
ONEArmenia is pairing with Oxfam to crowdfund for the construction of 4 greenhouses in 4 villages (Ditavan, Aygehovit, Sarigyugh, and a fourth community to be confirmed) in the Tavush region of Armenia. 1A is contributing $10,000 to the construction of each greenhouse (making a total of $40,000). These special greenhouses will increase the size and impact by over 50% from previous ones built by Oxfam.
Each greenhouse will bring an estimated harvest of 7.5 tons (7,500kg) of mixed high volume vegetable crops and an annual net revenue of $3,200 to each community. Furthermore, it is expected to provide a stable and salaried income to 12 women, members of female-led cooperatives Oxfam established several years ago as part of a community-building and gender-equalizing initiative. This campaign isn’t just about building the job market, it’s about building sustainable communities on every dimension.
