The story of Dolcetto

There are 1,300 young farmers, a third of whom are women, who grow around 500 hectares of organic pineapples in Togo. Each one does not own more than half a hectare of land, but together they managed to reach the Italian supermarkets and guarantee a decent job to people in their country.


Realized by Coopermondo and the Commission of Women Cooperative Managers of Confcoopeative, “WomeNpowerment in Coops” is a handbook on the  Italian cooperative experiences towards the achievement of gender equality in the world, offering basic notions on international development cooperation and gender issues in difficult contexts.
