She has been a tireless advocate for farmers in her native South Africa for many years, traveling the world to discuss issues such as sustainable agriculture, climate change and supporting women farmers.

In the fall of 2011, Chitsunge addressed the Global Science Conference on Climate-Smart Agriculture about the role of the farmer in addressing climate change.
