About Us

Founded in 2008

We're growing fast

The National Women In Agriculture Association (NWIAA) was founded and established in February 2008 by Dr. Tammy Gray-Steele, our Executive Director/ International President, The organization is internationally headquartered in Oklahoma City, OK. USA.

NWIAA provides agriculture outreach, and education fuelled by sisterhood aimed at improving the agricultural productivity and sustainability of small-scale farmers in the World.

NWIAA believes rural women, especially minority women, have been neglected; the lack of resources, knowledge, information and technology has stagnated rural development worldwide. NWIAA is working assiduously to strengthen the capacity of rural farmers, local organizations, and institutions, fostering innovation and entrepreneurship in the agricultural sector.

NWIAA is the first minority woman-owned and operated organization that provides innovative outreach education that attracts and sustains current and future generations with its innovative, spiritual, and USDA-certified education techniques.

The NWIAA Africa chapter called TIWAEA was initiated in August 2021. The TIWAEA vision is to establish Chapters in the 36 States of Nigeria including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), across Africa, pursuant to this, we have established 16 chapters in Nigeria’s States of Akwa Ibom, Abuja, Benue, Cross-River, Rivers, Plateau, Lagos, Oyo, Ogun, Imo, Enugu, Edo, Delta, Osun, Kebbi, Kenya, Ghana, Liberia, Uganda, and counting. TIWAEA/NWIAA is one of the fastest growing organizations on the African continent with more chapters coming up in Nigeria and springing up all over Africa to reduce food insecurity, and poverty, for equality and sustainable opportunities for women Farmers, and vulnerable youths.

We strive to bring out the best in you.

Our passion is to provide education, and training, increase farmer’s access to knowledge, information, and technology, promote market linkages, and value chain development, and empowerment that would contribute to the sustainability of the agricultural sector in Africa, making agriculture profitable and attractive to the next generation of Women/Youths and even Men in rural, urban and underserved communities throughout the United States, Nigeria, Africa and other parts of the World, creating a more prosperous and sustainable future for all.

NWIAA/TIWAEA have attracted much local and International attention.
It is our hope that you will join us on our mission to provide women/men/youths with the opportunity to not only put healthy, home-grown food on the table but to succeed in agriculture even to the point of becoming an “agri-diva”! If you are interested in becoming more self-sufficient, food secured, or beginning a business in agriculture, please contact us today, and we will educate, train and empower you to make your goals a reality.
