How can women achieve land equality globally?

A world conference sparks questions

Women in field

A land and poverty World Bank conference being held this week is highlighting struggles millions of women around the world face because they are unable to access and own land, despite laws to the contrary.

“Only 30 percent of the world’s population own land titles, and women are often the least likely to have any land registered,” Victoria Stanley, senior rural development specialist at The World Bank, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Unfortunately many women don’t realize their right to own land.

At Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, we help women realize their rights and access funds through Village-Savings-and-Loan programs. This gives them resources to buy land.

Children Believe works globally to empower children to dream fearlessly, stand up for what they believe in — and be heard. For 60+ years, we’ve brought together brave young dreamers, caring supporters and partners, and unabashed idealists. Together, we’re driven by a common belief: creating access to education — inside and outside of classrooms — is the most powerful tool children can use to change their world.
