Summary :

Across Kerala, India, 320,000 women have organised into almost 60,000 collectives to cultivate rice, vegetables and fruit on thousands of hectares of otherwise fallow land, helping to improve food security and incomes for the members of the Kudumbashree community network – arguably one of the largest women’s networks in the world.
