Farm Africa's Laughing Season

Thanks to everyone that supported Laughing Season 2019

What a phenomenal night of stand up! With your help we raised funds towards our coffee is life appeal meaning your donations were doubled by the UK government. The matched funding unlocked from the UK government will directly fund a Farm Africa project that will give women in Kanungu in western Uganda the opportunity to make a decent living from coffee farming.
