Addis Ababa, Ethiopia – The U.S. Government, through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), held a graduation ceremony today for 63 women who received technical and business skills development training. The training provided them with the skillsets needed to become successful owners and operators of dairy, meat and live animal businesses.

The training was organized in order to address gaps identified during an analysis conducted in 2012, which showed that women working in the dairy and livestock sectors lacked the leadership knowledge, access to and control of business resources, decision-making powers and business plan preparation skills necessary to become successful entrepreneurs.

USAID and eight other organizations, the Maize Alliance, signed an agreement today to provide an integrated bundle of services to smallholder maize farmers in Ethiopia. While substantial investments from the government and development partners are being made, an integrated approach is necessary to unlock the potential in the maize value chain. This new alliance will assist maize farmers with a secure commercial market, access to finance, post-harvest handling and storage services, and efficient aggregation and commercialization services through farmers’ cooperative unions.

USAID under the U.S. Feed the Future Initiative supports the Government of Ethiopia’s Agricultural Growth Program with the goals of raising agricultural productivity, improving income earning opportunities for women and the rural poor, and spurring growth in rural areas. The attainment of these goals is to a very large extent, dependent upon the development of policies and systems that encourage resiliency and adaptation to climate changes, private-sector participation and investment, good and transparent governance, and none of these can happen without secure land tenure and property rights.
