Harvest fundraising

Farming doesn’t just provide food, but income and prosperity. Good agriculture can change lives. This harvest, by coming together to raise money for Farm Africa you and your congregation could help families in rural Africa thrive.

Whether you choose to have a Farm Africa collection during your harvest service, hold a harvest lunch or even organise a sponsored walk (those of you who know our famous welly walks will understand!), every pound you raise will help farmers like Deboh to transform their lives.

Deboh lives in Oromia region, in Ethiopia, with her children. She earns a living by keeping livestock and depends on her animals to provide for her family. But Oromia has been hard hit by the ongoing drought and for people like Deboh, the effects have been catastrophic.

“I have lost weight from depression. I didn’t know what to do. The situation was getting worse. The thought of what would happen to my children and to the rest of the cattle kept me awake at night”.

Farm Africa was able to support farmers like Deboh by delivering emergency fodder for their remaining cattle. Through a partnership with the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Ethiopia, we delivered animal feed in areas where the drought had dried up pasture. A total of 24 trucks distributed support to 1,400 families. And every day our staff work hard to help people like Deboh to diversify their income streams and make their businesses more robust in the long term.

This harvest, you can join with families like Deboh's tackling hunger and poverty by fundraising at your church. To help you, 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.
