Lastly on our week of women #IWD22 we are meeting Kamili, Monwara, Ashik and Sobuji – four អេធិកឡជីវឧស្ម័ន - ATEC Biodigesters customers finding benefit through the BPP.

In Bangladesh, over 85% of households are reliant on firewood and cow dung for cooking. Women spend around 150 hours per year collecting these fuels and four hours a day setting fires, cooking, and cleaning the pots. This reliance on wood has ramped up deforestation, only 14% of forests remain. 

With 47% of the total labour force in the agricultural sector, #DFATbpp Partner ATEC has introduced biodigester technology to provide free, biogas for cooking. The partnership reduces indoor air pollution by 80%, offsets greenhouse gas emissions from burning wood, generates carbon credits to make the biodigesters more affordable, and perhaps most importantly, gives women valuable time back in their day to create income-earning and socialisation opportunities.

Happy International Women’s Day! #IWD22

“In the beginning we thought we could never produce the bricks and handle the machine. Now it’s easy work.”

Today we are meeting the “Three Sisters”, Didi, Bahini, and Tanahun, who joined together to form their own brick manufacturing company. The sisters are supported by Build Up Nepal, a social business helping entrepreneurs and communities to build safe, affordable homes, and resilient incomes.

A #DFATbpp partnership, with Ingenjörer utan gränser, S&S Management Services, the Australian Government and Build up Nepal is scaling up Build Up Nepal’s operations. The partnerships aims to save 10,305 tonnes of Co2 emissions from traditional manufacturing methods while empowering women like the three sisters to establish brick manufacturing companies.  

A year on from establishing their business, Didi, Bahini, and Tanahun are financially independent, “after working here, we don’t have to ask our husbands for money.” With more access to money and improved decision-making power, the three sisters are looking at expanding their business and hiring more locals to help protect their environment. 

International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women globally.

International Women’s Day 2022 is just two days away! 

This year for #IWD2022 we are spotlighting key women from our BPP Partnerships and showing how they are adapting and transforming their communities to build an equitable and sustainable tomorrow. 

To get us started meet Rohini Hamid, CEO of Sea&Soil. Based in Fiji, Sea & Soil are working to transform the 110 costal villages in Fiji home to more than 100,000 women. As CEO, Rohini is focused on harnessing the skills and knowledge of women to build alternate income streams for costal communities while introducing new carbon sink products to the market. 
providing alternate income streams for Fijian coastal communities while introducing new carbon sink products to the market.

In Fiji, #COVID19 and the subsequent restrictions heavily impacted employment in Fiji’s largest industry, tourism. With limited job opportunities, rural communities, particularly women, were left without jobs and income. Rohini and her team have helped #ChangingClimates by raising the incomes of rural Fijian women by encouraging the planting of carbon sink products through seaweed farming.
