"I saw a light in InnovAgroWoMed, I found support, openness, a bit of fun too. I don't want to give up anymore", Rosaria, italian beneficiary

"I’m thinking about starting a company to prepare gravies and sauces. It will be a small business in the beginning. I want my daughters to be inspired by my initiative; I want them to realise that being a woman is not a disadvantage. I discovered the world of "cooperatives" here, and I would like to work with other girls and women who have been forced to give up. I don’t want to give up anymore. I have given up enough.", Rosaria, Agrifooder, InnovAgroWoMed beneficiary in Italy. Passionate about Sicilian cuisine, she decided to put herself to the test and keep going forward with other courageous women ready to start a new business.

CESIE, partner of the project in Italy, collects in the framework of its "rewrite your story" ("Riscrivi la tua storia") campaign some testimonies of the participants in the training and coaching programme of the InnovAgroWoMed project.

Environmental sustainability, women's empowerment and enhancement of the agri-food sector can be the real drivers of development in the Euro-Mediterranean area.

InnovAgroWoMed takes up this challenge and carries out actions aimed at strengthening women’s employment and the ability to do business in the agri-food sector.
