Sponsor a farmers' group

For just £10 a month, you can help farmers in Africa to feed their families, forever.

Choose a country to support with a regular gift, and you will receive regular updates so that you can follow the progress of a group of farmers living there. Your donations will help farmers in your chosen country to overcome the huge challenges they face when providing for their families, or you can ask Farm Africa to use your gift wherever the need is greatest. We'll help farmers get the best from their land, and each farmer will be encouraged to share what they've learned with others – so that eventually, whole communities will have enough to eat, for good.



Helping farmers build a livelihood by growing peppers

Peppers are an important cash crop in Halaba, Ethiopia. But if farmers cannot afford the right seeds and fertilisers to grow a healthy harvest, they are unable to provide for their families.

Your support will give groups like the Feregat Pepper Group access to the best seeds, and training in how to care for them. And they will also receive help to market and sell their produce in bulk, so they can earn the best possible price.

Providing farmers with solutions to frequent droughts

Members of the Ebenezer Self Help Group live in Mwingi, Kenya. Here, a lack of high-quality seeds and unreliable rainfall make it difficult for farmers to grow enough.

Your support will provide groups like this with seeds for drought-tolerant crops, and training in water conservation techniques such as drip irrigation – helping them to ensure that their harvests are always big and healthy.

Specialist sesame seeds are changing farmers' lives

Many of Tanzania's sesame farmers don't have access to the high-quality seeds they need to maximise their harvests, and they also struggle to sell their sesame locally for a good price.

So we're working with groups like Pofu Sesame Group to establish community seed farms and marketing cooperatives so they can grow more, sell it for a higher price and pay for food, schooling and medicines.

Preventing pests and diseases from destroying crops

Diseases like root rot, rosette disease and mosaic virus often farmers' decimate entire harvests – leaving members of the Tubasalisa Women's Group without enough food.

Your sponsorship could help a group like theirs to grow disease-resistant varieties of beans and groundnuts to feed their families, and a surplus to sell too – meaning they can provide for all their families' needs.
