Farm Africa focuses on transforming agriculture and managing natural resources sustainably.

We work with different types of farmers in a range of regions. Their local situations vary, but the problems they face are all too familiar: lack of training and technology, inadequate inputs, no finance, vulnerability to climate change and poor links to markets.

We’ll make change happen.
