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.

A large number of people in Ethiopia live on less than $1 a day. The economy is diversifying, but farming is still vital to many people.

Around three-quarters of Ethiopians are engaged in agriculture, mainly in subsistence and rain-fed farming and livestock production. But despite this, more than 31 million Ethiopians don’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 Ethiopia since 1988. From providing good-quality seeds to business training and forest conservation, we provide simple and practical support to help lift farmers and herders out of poverty.
