The Rural Women’s Assembly (RWA) is a self-organised network or alliance of national rural women’s movements, assemblies, grassroots organisations and chapters of mixed peasant unions, federations and movements across eight countries in the SADC region.

Over a period of four years, we have gathered together poor, rural women into regional Rural Women’s Assemblies; into international platforms coinciding with major multi-lateral events, such as COP 17 and Rio +20; and into regional lobbying processes that have run parallel to SADC meetings, as well. National chapters of the RWA have also organised their own lobbying events and activities to coincide with important national meetings, summits and on international days, such as International Rural Women’s Day and International Women’s Day.

  2. In Malawi only few women know about RWA, What can we do to sensitise more women who are interested to join it. Am an Agriculture Extension worker working in Lilongwe East at Chitsime Extension Planning Area. I have been asked by farmers for a year now about RWA. Please assist me with information on membership, focus areas and contacts. Am ready to assist women with skills and knowledge about RWA in my working area and neighboring districts.
