Female Leadership supports Afghan Widows to Address Food Security


Food Ladder International partnered with fellow Australian-based non-profit organisation Mahboba’s Promise to deliver a project in Afghanistan.

Food Ladder International’s mission is to address food security by empowering the poorest people in the world with an environmentally sustainable, high-yield, hydroponic greenhouse garden system.

“In Afghanistan if your husband dies, or is incapacitated, you are left with no way of protecting – or providing for – yourself.
