Organization for Women and Development International is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization supports and empowers women and children in rural communities. Our VISION is to see these rural communities free from hunger in which the women of West Africa play a key contributing role socially, economically, and culturally to the future development and well-being of themselves, their families and communities.
We used to drink dirty water from the river and wash our agricultural products “Cassava” with it. We experienced numerous health problems.
OFED built a manual water well and now we have drinking water. OFED also provided us with processing equipment and a storage unit. We now can process the whole cassava root quickly and produce in large quantities and safely store it. With the increased revenues, we are financially autonomous and can take care of our children.
Thank you OFED for your concerns for our cooperative and the well-being of our people.Bakari Akouvi,
