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 have double the impact. 

Farm Africa has been selected by the UK government to receive match funding to expand our Growing Futures project!

All donations raised for the project between 14 October 2017 and 14 January 2018 will be doubled through the Aid Match scheme – meaning any money your church raises will go twice as far!

Since 2011 Growing Futures has supported over 3,000 young women and men in Trans-Nzoia East, western Kenya to become successful farming entrepreneurs.

The extension means we can reach a further 2,000 young farmers in the neighbouring county of Elgeyo Marakwet.

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.
