Giving circle

Funding Farm Africa's future through the Growing Futures Giving Circle.


Farm Africa has been supporting women to escape poverty for nearly 40 years. Because we know that effective agriculture has the power to change lives.

In these uncertain and unpredictable times, it is vital that reliable funding is available, so we never have to let down the farmers we work with. That’s why we have decided to create the Growing Futures Giving Circle - a collective of likeminded people who will champion women and young people across eastern Africa to not just survive, but thrive.

By committing to make an annual donation for three years and pledging to bring three of your own contacts into the circle, Growing Futures members can help women and young people across eastern Africa become entrepreneurs who can prosper in the face of inequality, food insecurity and climate change.

“It was Farm Africa who introduced me to beekeeping. Beekeeping is great because it conserves the environment and it increases my income. Because bees need trees to make honey, it encourages us to plant more trees so we can get more honey. Every year I plant more trees.”

As well as providing agricultural training and expertise, Farm Africa supports farmers to access the supplies, finance and markets they need to build resilient and sustainable businesses.

With Farm Africa by their side, women and young people can grow more prosperous futures for themselves and their families, while protecting the environment for generations to come.

Together we can make a transformative and lasting impact on the lives of farmers in eastern Africa.


To join the Growing Futures circle we ask for a minimum annual donation of £5,000, in return you will receive our membership package. We will also provide inspiring content for Growing Futures members to share with their networks, to spread the word and bring more people on board to help bring lasting change.
