What we do

Farming doesn’t just provide food, but income and prosperity. Good agriculture can change lives.

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.

Crops

Crops

Eight out of ten rural Africans scrape their living from small plots. Soils are often poor, drought ever near.

Farm Africa brings in the smart crops, drought-busting techniques and marketing skills that make such tough farming viable, profitable and sustainable.

Livestock

Livestock

Where land is arid and crop cultivation hard, many farmers make their living by keeping animals.

Animals are generally the family’s most valuable possession and Farm Africa helps with basic animal health services.

Fisheries

Fisheries

Pollution and overfishing have put wild fish stocks under pressure. The price of fish has rocketed, hitting people hard.

Farm Africa is pioneering fish farming in Kenya, which ensures sustainable protein supplies and a major new source of income.

Forests

Forests

Deforestation destroys wildlife and dehydrates soil. We help forest communities replace traditional tree-cutting and wood and charcoal selling with new eco-friendly enterprises that protect biodiversity and provide a sustainable income for future generations.

Climate resilience

Climate resilience

If the current consumption of fossil fuels continues, global temperatures could rise by as much as 4⁰, which would have a devastating impact on farmers' livelihoods.

Farm Africa helps smallholders to farm in ways which don't damage the environment, and to build resilience to future climate shocks.
