Funding partnerships

Our funders are also very much our partners, and we aim to build strategic and mature relationships that allow us to achieve common goals and lasting impact.

Strategic funding partnerships

Farm Africa, in consortium with Self Help Africa, has a three-year Programme Partnership Agreement from the Department for International Development. This strategic funding is extremely valuable for Farm Africa, as it gives us the flexibility and certainty that allows us to deliver our ambitious strategy. Beyond the funding itself, the PPA provides a mechanism for us to engage strategically with DFID and share and learn with other leading development NGOs that are also PPA holders.

The consortium with Self Help Africa is a model of strategic engagement with a complementary NGO; our work together encompasses research, policy, and organisational strengthening, and is very much based on peer-to-peer learning in our African offices as well as in the UK and Ireland.

Farm Africa works with a range of consortium partners from both the private and not-for-profit sector, to deliver development programmes. If you are interested in working as a consortium partner with Farm Africa, please contact our programme funding team on 020 7430 0440 or
