|Title:||Viet Nam - Midori, UN Messenger of Peace visits Tuyen Quang - Dec 2018|
Midori speaks with Ma Thi Nhu, a smallholder farmer in Dinh village (far right). Ma raises pigs, and has been able to earn enough money to support her family and expand her business. She has become a leader in her community and many younger women look to her as a role model.
As part of her annual outreach tour, Midori and three young musicians visited ethnic minority communities in Tuyen Quang province and perform for local audiences. While there, Midori met with rural women to learn more about the challenges they face, which include extreme poverty, food insecurity and malnutrition, and the impact the IFAD-supported project has had on their lives.
IFAD, together with the Government of Viet Nam, has recently completed the Agriculture, Farmers and Rural Areas Support Project in the Tuyen Quang, Ninh, Thuan and Gia Lai Provinces.
