Today, over half of the world’s extreme poor live in sub-Saharan Africa. The vast majority work in agriculture. Farm Africa reduces poverty by helping farmers in eastern Africa to grow more, sell more and sell for more. We work in DR Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda helping farmers to increase their harvests, build their incomes and sustain natural resources while also protecting their local environment for generations to come.
Effective agriculture has the power to change lives. It underpins prosperity, food security and stability the world over. Farm Africa focuses on transforming agriculture and managing natural resources sustainably. We champion a holistic approach that boosts yields, protects the environment and connects smallholder farmers to thriving markets.
We work with different types of farmers in a range of regions. Their local situations vary, but the problems they face are all too familiar: lack of training and technology, inadequate inputs, no finance, vulnerability to climate change and poor links to markets. We want to increase our impact, lift more communities out of poverty, open up more agricultural markets and provide more expertise. We’ll make change happen.
Farm Africa are working towards building a prosperous rural Africa.
