Growing Her Future (documentary)

Meet Asnakech Zema. In this film, she welcomes us to her thriving farm in southern Ethiopia. In the last three years, she has built up her land through practicing conservation agriculture, and now grows enough food to feed her family and others. The work she and her family are doing to improve soil fertility, add crop diversity and develop marketing are increasing their resilience in the face of climate change and other crises. Asnakech’s husband treats her with new respect—and works alongside her in a farming and life partnership.

Asnakech is not alone. This film introduces us to others in her community who are no longer dependent on government safety net programs, as new farming practices, co-operative Self Help Groups (SHG) and greater gender equality bring widespread change.
