Effective agriculture has the power to change lives. It underpins prosperity, food security and stability the world over. Farm Africa focuses on transforming agriculture and managing natural resources sustainably. We champion a holistic approach that boosts yields, protects the environment and connects smallholder farmers to thriving markets.

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 have an ambitious strategy to expand our work over the next five years. We’ll increase our impact. Lift more communities out of poverty. Work with more corporate partners who share our vision. Open up more agricultural markets. Provide more expertise.

We’ll make change happen.

We would like to advise candidates that Farm Africa never asks for payments of any type (registration, training, administrative etc) in relation to any of its recruitment processes. If you are contacted by someone regarding charges in relation to your application for a role with us, please do not issue any payment. 

Please contact us if you want to verify any requests to pay recruitment charges.
