That’s where Farm Africa comes in.
In sub-Saharan Africa 80% of farmland is managed by smallholder farmers. Farm Africa helps farmers grow more, sell more and sell for more. We pioneer techniques that boost harvests, build rural incomes, sustain natural resources and help end Africa’s need for aid.
We work with communities, the private sector and governments to find the most effective ways to fight poverty.
Typically, our staff are from the local area, can speak the local language, and have a deep understanding of the local context.
Our technical experts closely monitor the results of projects, and adapt approaches as needed. Recognising that the private sector has a huge role to play in developing prosperity in rural Africa, we help smallholder farmers to develop links to markets.
Farm Africa means business. We put world-class expertise into farmers’ hands, making them productive, climate-smart and competitive.More about what we do >
