I am Mildred Crawford and I have been a member of Jamaica Network of Rural Women Producers. It is a non profit organization with a focus on the social and economic conditions of rural women . It also seeks to assist these women through training and seeking markets so that they become empowered and enjoy a better quality of life.

Within the last 12 months the focus of the organization have been on Sexual and Reproductive Health, Capacity Building, Economic Empowerment, Trade Related Issues.

Hoping to converse with you on this site.

Hi Mildred,

It's great to hear a voice from Jamaica here on PulseWire! Please tell us more about your organization and what kinds of projects you are involved in. What are major challenges that women in Jamaica face that may be similar and/or different with women around the world?

Cheers, Jade
