Summary

The Women's EARTH Project (WEP) provides women in underserved areas of Tanzania with peer-to-peer training in One Health. One Health is an innovative approach that recognizes the interdependency of human, animal, and ecosystem health, and is critical to restoring the balance between humans and nature. By improving health and livelihoods using solutions rooted in One Health, WEP graduates will inspire a local movement of change that safeguards communities, animals, and the resources they share.

Challenge

The human-driven impacts of biodiversity loss, climate change, and resource degradation have far-reaching effects on human, animal, and ecosystem health. It is often the poorest regions of the world that carry the heaviest burden of this strain. Gender inequalities leave women in particular with less access to resources making them exceptionally vulnerable to natural disasters, disease, and food insecurity - all consequences of our overtaxed planet.

Solution

Many women in remote areas of Tanzania spend their days navigating between human, domestic animal, and wildlife interfaces and have a unique perspective on ecosystem balance. The Women's EARTH project harnesses this collective knowledge and places opportunity and solutions in the hands of women at the vanguard of human, animal, and ecosystem health. Working collaboratively, these women will identify and implement practical One Health solutions, enabling communities and nature to thrive.

Long-Term Impact

Contributing to the women's EARTH project (WEP) will provide funds to establish a network of WEP hubs focused on peer-to-peer training in One Health. Strengthened by this collective network, Women's EARTH graduates will continue to work at the local level to identify and develop practical interventions to solve human, animal, and ecosystem health challenges, while expanding their efforts to promote women-led health and conservation initiatives across Tanzania's Southern Highlands region.
