APN seeks to strengthen the capacity of the Arab peoples to sustain the region's natural resources and gain sovereignty over them , particularly in areas suffering from war and occupation.
In an effort to enhance food sovereignty in vulnerable communities, APN responded to the ambitions of a group of women agricultural workers from the Rahma Association for Orphans in the Zamaliya village – Northern Jordan Valley. APN rented a 10 dunam plot of land for the women for two years and supplied them with all necessities for the first planting season including irrigation pipes, seeds, fertilizers, and water. In an effort to ensure the women’s independence and self-sufficiency, a portion of the proceeds will go towards supporting the women’s work in upcoming seasons.
