Dear friends and family

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

On [insert date: dd/mm/yy], I am taking on [insert challenge e.g. TCS London Marathon, running 26.2 miles in London] to raise much needed funds for Farm Africa.

Today, over half of the world’s extreme poor live in sub-Saharan Africa. The vast majority work in agriculture.

Farm Africa reduces poverty in eastern Africa by helping farmers grow more, sell more and sell for more. Working in Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, Farm Africa is growing agriculture, protecting the environment and developing businesses in rural areas.

Here's how your donation could help:

£5 could help to buy 10kg of forage seeds, so that farmers can grow food for their livestock.

£11 could provide training to one woman in high-quality coffee production in Uganda.

£16 could help to pay for a farmer to hire help to bring in his harvest.

£22 could help to establish a forest products enterprise.

£60 is enough to buy two local female goats for pastoralist women in Ethiopia.

£100 could help to provide two farmers with the means to start a beekeeping business, including a hive, beekeeping equipment and a bee colony.

Thank you so much in advance for your kind support and generous donation. I look forward to telling you more about my fundraiser!
