This week’s story from DRC shows what can happen when a woman knows and pursues her land rights.

Our Script of the week is a short narrative which presents the main reasons why it’s important for women to learn more about land and land rights.

One of the most important parts of farming is having secure access to land. Sometimes farmers own their land. Some inherit land from their parents or family. Other farmers borrow, lease, or rent land from the government or from landowners.

As a woman farmer, whether you own, rent, or borrow the land you farm, it’s important to learn more about your rights to land. Knowing more about land laws and regulations can affect the way you farm and the well-being of your family.
