That’s where Farm Africa comes in.
Although Africa struggles with famine, it possesses almost 50% of the world’s uncultivated crop land and has huge capacity for development. Farm Africa believes that Africa has the power to feed itself and that its smallholders hold the key to lasting rural prosperity. We work directly with farmers to help them unleash their potential to feed Africa’s people.
We have around 170 local staff on the ground, sharing knowledge and pioneering techniques that boost harvests, sustain natural resources and help end Africa’s need for aid. We work with communities, the private sector and governments to make sure we’re finding the most effective ways to increase food production.
In 2014, we reached 1.4 million people in eastern Africa. With your help, in 2016 we’ll be even closer to ending hunger and poverty permanently.
Farm Africa means business. We put world-class expertise into farmers’ hands, making them productive, climate-smart and competitive.More about what we do >
