Our work in Ethiopia

We provide simple and practical support to help lift farmers out of poverty. We provide simple and practical support to help lift farmers out of poverty.

Ethiopia is home to a large number of people living below the international poverty line, and although the economy is diversifying, farming is still the main source of income for many people.

Around 80-85% Ethiopians are engaged in agriculture, mainly in subsistence and rain-fed farming and livestock production. Despite this, around 35% of the population doesn’t have enough nutritious food to eat.

Frequent drought, a lack of training and equipment for farmers, and poor access to markets make it difficult for them to earn a living.

Farm Africa has worked in the landlocked country since 1988. From dairy goats and good-quality seeds to business training and forest conservation, we provide simple and practical support to help lift farmers and herders out of poverty.
