Women have broad a positive impacts on the economy, through their presence in business, agriculture and industry, as domestic workers, market traders, migrant workers, and in all remuneration they provide. However, despite this progress, obstacles to the equal and full participation of women, and the absence of a truly enabling environment persist today. The Festival will also allow young people to find the means to act, to enable young Africans to engage in income-generating activities which will not only allow them to eat properly, but also improve their wellbeing. It is in this spirit that
SUD DEVELOPPEMENT with its partners have implemented actions to mobilize economic actors, States, development actors and NGOs
to act together. The WeeFi Festival will reflect this in several countries.
