Why we're needed

Nearly a billion people in the world are hungry. With growing populations and climate change, food production needs to rise by some 70% over 40 years to meet demand. 

That’s where Farm Africa comes in.

Although Africa struggles with famine, it possesses 60% of the world’s uncultivated crop land and has huge capacity for development.

Because we focus solely on farming, and have 200 specialist staff on the ground, Farm Africa has a unique ability to spark change.

We’re on hand to help farmers: 

  • double and triple harvests
  • become self sufficient
  • reduce poverty and hunger forever.
