Farm Africa’s mission is to reduce poverty permanently by unleashing African farmers’ abilities to grow their incomes and manage their natural resources sustainably.

We are looking for a highly motivated, bright and organised volunteer to help deliver a variety of projects that will support our work in engaging the private sector and reduce poverty for smallholder farmers in eastern Africa.

We are looking for someone with entrepreneurial instincts and fantastic research skills who is willing to work on a wide range of tasks both individually and as part of a hardworking, close knit (and fun) team.
