How Clocks Helped Grow Half a Million Tons of Food

Why would talking about a clock help a family grow more food? In this guest blog, Emily Hillenbrand highlights the work of the Pathways program, which focuses on getting women farmers access to the rights, resources, and skills they need to be effective producers. The “daily clock” exercise, which helps men and women talk together about the gender division of household burden of labor, provides valuable insight for communities and individuals that has led to effective change in the treatment of women farmers. The blog further highlights the successes of the Pathways program, which has generated $31 of benefit for every $1 the project spent working in Ghana, Mali, and Malawi.
