International Women’s Day, or le huit mars as it is often referred to here in Cameroon, is a day of celebration—a flurry of dancing feet, clanking beer bottles and deafening music. Though it might go without saying, it’s our favorite holiday. This year, we’ve been fortunate to get to know many incredible and inspiring women farmers through our work with Utamtsi and GIC Sondason. So, for this Women’s Day, we celebrate them. They are truly the backbone of a community and an integral part of sustainable development. They’ve also been a joy to meet and get acquainted with over the past three months—they motivate us in our work and inspire our learning with their spirited determination.
