Support Farm Africa by attending or taking part in one of our events.
Whether it's a challenge you're after or a fun evening in your local community - there is something for everyone in the Farm Africa calendar.
Our office is open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
Before you get in touch, there may be an answer to your question below.
Please note that due to limited resources, we’re not able to respond to:
- requests for financial support from individuals
- unsolicited requests for funding and partnership outside of our current areas of operation
- speculative job and volunteering applications.
Due to some technical difficulties, some of the queries submitted below have not been received. We have resolved this issue, but please note that if your query was sent before December 2015 it may not have reached us. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience - if you have not received a reply from us you may wish to resubmit your query.
Why doesn't Farm Africa work in other African countries?
We have to carefully manage our resources and expansion outside the five core countries we work in is not part of our strategy. Farm Africa acknowledges the need to alleviate hardship among farmers in other African countries, but we cannot respond to individual requests to undertake work in other locations.
Can I work or volunteer for Farm Africa?
We are delighted when people want to support Farm Africa and are inspired to learn more about our work. We believe that Africa’s farmers have the power to feed Africa’s people, and are proud that most of our staff and any volunteers are local to the project area and understand the local conditions, challenges and opportunities.
As a focused and technical organisation, we are only able to offer overseas opportunities if there is a specific need that requires particular skills and expertise. Typically these will be for experts from the agricultural or food sector who will work on a time-limited piece of research or consultancy.
We have a range of opportunities in the UK for volunteer placements and internships. These include fundraising support, communications, helping with our events and research. We are always happy to train volunteer speakers to deliver presentations within their communities.
What will Farm Africa do with my contact details?
You can be assured that we do not sell our donors’ details to other organisations.
When you provide your details we store them securely on our database. We only use these details to contact you about your giving, Farm Africa’s work and how you can support us, unless you ask us not to. You can get in touch with our Supporter Services Team at any time to let us know when and how you would like us to contact you or if you would like to be removed from our mailing list by emailing them on: email@example.com. More information about data protection can be found here.
How do you spend your money?
Farm Africa receives funding through various sources, including statutory donors, the general public, trusts and major donors.
To learn more about how we spend our money, please see our annual review PDF.
Is Farm Africa involved in emergency work?
We are not a relief agency. However, since we operate in remote and often marginalised areas, we may be the only NGO present when an emergency strikes. As such, we are well placed to raise the alarm and advocate rapid responses from specialist relief agencies, and sometimes provide emergency support.
Can Farm Africa provide funding for my project or organisation?
We are an operational NGO and not a grant-giving organisation, so we cannot respond to unsolicited requests for funds.
The exception to this rule is our Maendeleo Agricultural Enterprise Fund (MAEF), which awards grants. Funding rounds are advertised on this website so please refer to this page to see if a call is open and whether your organisation would be eligible.
I have a question about sponsoring a farmers' group
Please see our sponsoring a farmers' group explained page.
Can Farm Africa provide information for research?
Yes, it is sometimes possible to link up with Farm Africa as part of your research, depending on the area of research and the capacity within our project teams. Please send a letter explaining the purpose of your research on the headed paper of your institution to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I contact you about a product or service you might be interested in?
If you want to tell us about a product or service that you think we might be interested in then please contact us via the form below, providing as much information as possible. Our central support staff will direct the information to relevant colleagues within Farm Africa who will contact you in the event that your product or service could be beneficial to their work.
Any comments, suggestions or complaints?
Farm Africa strives to provide the best service possible to anyone who comes in contact with the organisation. We always value any feedback from our supporters, in the form of comments, suggestions or complaints. All such feedback is recorded and reviewed regularly and we endeavour to learn from feedback and to address any issues raised fairly and efficiently.
We are a member of the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB), and is committed to best practice in fundraising. As such, we aim to adhere to the Codes of Fundraising Practice, as established by the Institute of Fundraising.
Where your concerns relate to fundraising, you should initially contact our complaints co-ordinator, Kasia Nieduzak, via the contact details provided in the document below. Once we have received your complaint, you will receive an initial acknowledgement within two working days, and we will aim to make an initial response (after investigation) within five working days.
