Publications

New Field worked with its partners to document progress, capture stories and collect data. From this, we have created a number of publications to share what we’ve learned. We also supported our partners to publish their findings on issues affecting rural women and their organizations, in order to inspire others to see rural women as powerful agents of change.

In the Wake of Conflict

In the Wake of Conflict (2015) traces the evolution of New Field Foundation's ten-year grantmaking in Senegal to support peace and vibrant communities after 20 years of conflict.
