Harvest fundraising

Farming doesn’t just provide food, but income and prosperity. Good agriculture can change lives. This Harvest, will you and your congregation help change lives by coming together to raise money for Farm Africa?

Your support could help farmers in eastern Africa learn ways to grow more, sell more and earn more – so they can build more prosperous futures for themselves and their children.

 

Whether you choose to have a Farm Africa collection during your harvest service (perhaps in a welly boot?), hold a harvest lunch or even organise a welly walk, every pound you raise will help farmers like Joshua increase their income by growing crops that take a short time to mature and can be sold for a good price

Joshua is a farmer who lives with his wife, Maximilla, and their four young children in Trans-Nzoia County, western Kenya. The two work together to provide for their family, growing crops to eat and sell. They work hard, but with little knowledge of the best agricultural techniques, Joshua and Maximilla’s harvests are often smaller than they could be. They also struggle to find reliable buyers for their crops, so their income is low and unpredictable.This Harvest you can help change lives.

To help you celebrate this Harvest, we’ve developed a range of fundraising materials and ideas for your Harvest service. 

Don’t forget to tell us about your fundraising plans so we can offer you help and advice. 

If you have any further questions about fundraising for Farm Africa, or to order your Gift Aid envelopes, please contact us on community@farmafrica.org or 020 7430 0440.
