Life Opportunities

Empowering women and young people through health and education

When women and young people thrive, so do the people around them and wider society. We support women and children in our agricultural supply chains so they can act on choices they make, are protected from violence and harassment, and have equal access to opportunities and better health. By doing so, we can contribute to a virtuous circle where women are empowered and give the next generation the tools to fight poverty and prevent diseases.
