Give back this holiday season with a meaningful gift to help farmers in eastern Africa grow themselves out of poverty.

Today, more than half of the world’s extreme poor live in sub-Saharan Africa. The vast majority work in agriculture. And the female share of the agricultural labor force is the highest in the world.

Farm Africa reduces poverty in eastern Africa by helping farmers grow more, sell more and sell for more.

By donating today, you can help farmers boost their yields, access markets, protect the environment and build resilience to climate change.

Environmental destruction threatens the livelihoods of farmers and rural communities across eastern Africa and climate change is making the situation worse. The preservation of soil, forests, grazing lands and water resources are all critical to food security, poverty reduction and resilience to climate extremes.

Your tax-deductible donation will help farmers develop agricultural expertise and build links to markets while protecting the natural resources around them.

Your holiday gift will also support our work empowering rural women; whose lives are far from easy. Women provide much of the agricultural labor, while juggling domestic duties too, but often do not have control over the profits generated from their hard work.

Through the generosity of donations like yours, Farm Africa can help enable women to earn their own money and address the balance of power within families. When women prosper, they tend to invest more in their homes and families, giving their children nutritious food and helping the whole community to grow and prosper.

Help us empower whole farming communities across eastern Africa this holiday season.

Farm Africa USA is a nonprofit organization and contributions are fully tax-deductible under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Make your tax-deductible gift today.
