In the face of adversity, smallholder farmers show incredible perseverance in continuing to sow and harvest. This is the case for a group of women in the Nyiragongo territory of North Kivu, DRC, whose unwavering determination shows the very essence of resilience.

It is an unbeatable spirit, in the face of repeated shocks and uncertainty, that characterizes a group of women supported by various development partners including the National Extension Service (SNV) in the Nyiragongo territory. This region suffered a volcano eruption in May 2021, which scorched fields and damaged infrastructure. Since May 2022, escalating conflict among multiple armed groups has further exacerbated the situation, leading many women and families to seek refuge in displacement camps on the outskirts of the main regional city of Goma.
