Shared Interest’s work in Southern Africa—

particularly our work in agriculture—has

demonstrated the impact of climate change on

the livelihoods, and in some cases survival, of

rural communities.  As it redresses inequalities by enabling low-income people to build secure and dignified livelihoods and strong and resilient communities. 

Shared Interest is deeply committed to the

inseparable priorities of economic and

environmental sustainability — and economic

and environmental justice.

Since it's inception in 1994, Shared Interest has benefited 2.3 million people - primarily women.  The organization continues to expand in South Africa, Mozambique, Swaziland, Malawi and beyond.

“The fate of people and planet cannot be separated. I am pleased to accept this award from Shared Interest, which unlocks resources that Southern Africa’s people require to protect their economic and environmental rights. Today, the region’s most vulnerable communities (and some of its largest cities) depend on making these rights a reality for all.” said Kumi Naidoo incoming Amnesty International Secretary-General.

“My commitment to women’s empowerment both in the US and Africa has been at the very core of my work in Congress and I am delighted to be honored by Shared Interest with this award,” said Congresswoman Barbara Lee. “We have come a long way in valuing the contributions that women make to society at large, but there is still much more work to be done to ensure young women and girls can thrive and succeed. I remain dedicated to the cause of gender equality, which will help not just women, but everyone on the planet.”
