The Caribbean Network of Rural Women Producers (CANROP)
The Caribbean Network of Rural Women Producers (CANROP)was formally launched in 1999 as a response to the need to equip women with technical, administrative and entrepreneurial skills as a mean of improving their socio-economic status and creating employment in the rural areas in which they live. Presently, CANROP’s regional affiliations include: Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St Kitts, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago.
