TOR for end of Project Video Documentary

Women smallholder farmers generally have difficulties to fully practice sustainable agriculture coupled with their lack of secure access to land and restricted access to market, to farming inputs, and other related resources to increase their food production levels towards securing their rights to food. The Women’s Rights to Sustainable Livelihoods project thus seeks to support women to overcome some of the challenges confronting their ability to adopt and
practice sustainable agriculture. Some of these include; unpaid care work, inadequate access to farm inputs and other resources and low budgetary allocation to activities of women smallholder farmers
Those gaps are among roots of insufficient agricultural production and food insecurity observed in some rural area in Rwanda, especially Muko sector in Musanze District. Muko is one of Musanze District sector in the Northern province of Rwanda; it is one of the most insecure regions, suffering from chronic food insecurity and flooding. High unemployment coupled with limited vocational education opportunities result in extreme poverty. 52% of the 3,886 households in Muko live below the poverty line and struggle to provide basic necessities such as food, medical care, and school fees, and over 50% of children (six months-five years) suffer from chronic malnutrition. Therefore, knowing that women smallholder farmers produce the majority of food, the project is aiming to improve food security and economic opportunities in Muko sector by empowering women farmers.
The project aims to empower 1,256 most vulnerable women smallholder farmers and 251 vulnerable male smallholder farmers in Muko sector located in Musanze district (Northern Province) and therefore improve their food security and economic exposure through increased agricultural profitability.
