Welcome to Farm Africa’s 2020 Annual Review, where we reflect on some of last year’s achievements in working towards our vision of a resilient rural Africa where people and the environment thrive.

We are proud to have reached more than one million people across eastern Africa in 2020 with support that is needed now more than ever. Many of the smallholder farmers and pastoralists we support across eastern Africa are living on the edge. In the face of climate change, the pandemic, civil unrest and global commodity price fluctuations, farmers and rural businesses lack the safety nets and resilience to bounce back from shocks.

The case studies in this report outline how Farm Africa has helped smallholder farmers gain access to the markets, high quality inputs and finance needed to drive prosperity. You’ll read how we’ve supported agro-pastoralists to secure access to adequate water, fodder and healthcare for the livestock on which they rely.

The Covid-19 pandemic has posed many obstacles, but our dedicated teams have worked hard to innovate and adapt so they could continue wherever possible to support rural communities to maintain or increase their incomes while sustainably managing the natural resources around them.
