Farm Africa focuses on transforming agriculture. We help farmers to increase their harvests, protect the environment and sell their produce in thriving markets.
By providing support, training in effective farming methods and links to markets, we help to build more profitable farming businesses so that whole communities can lift themselves out of poverty.
Farm Africa is different. We are a specialist practitioner, focusing on four east African countries and concentrating only on farming.
Our 170 staff on the ground are highly qualified east African experts with a deep understanding of the region.
We promote 'climate-smart’ approaches so farmers can manage their natural resources sustainably, become more resilient to climate change and build long-term food security.
Our mix of agricultural innovation and training in effective marketing skills equips farmers to grow and earn more.
Through business training and setting up farmers' groups, they can get a higher price for their crops, and by learning how to process and store their produce they reduce waste and have more crop to sell.
We're also piloting mobile technology as a cost effective and efficient way of reaching the largest number of farmers possible.
Farm Africa tests new farming techniques and technologies and trains farmers how to use them. Success breeds success - once trained, farmers pass on their new-found knowledge to others, ensuring our work has an impact well beyond our projects.
By testing farming approaches in the region’s various soils and climates, the evidence we collect is more robust and the techniques we spread are proven to work.
