4-H Zimbabwe Foundation is in the process of establishing an awards fete set to honor women in agriculture particularly those farming under the Intwasa/Pfumvudza concept commonly known as conservation agriculture. These awards are to be held on the 6th of May 2021. The awards have been named 4-H Zimbabwe Foundation 2020 Rural Young Women in Agriculture Recognition Awards and are at an advanced stage. Last year, the organization awarded young entrepreneurs in the agriculture sector to boost confidence in their sustainability.
The concept was launched last year by the Ministry of Lands, Agriculture, Fisheries, Water and Rural Resettlement targeting rural and some urban farmers in Zimbabwe.
The organization’s Programs Officer Miss Ruth Chomola said they have embarked on women in agriculture mentorship programs including recognition of the best young women who did well in farming this season under Intwasa/Pfumvudza concept.
