About Us
Farm Africa is an
innovative charity that reduces poverty in rural eastern Africa by helping
farmers grow more, sell more and sell for more: we help farmers to not only
boost yields, but also gain access to markets, and add value to their produce.  We place a high priority on environmental
sustainability and develop approaches that help farmers to improve their yields
and incomes without degrading their natural resources. Our programmes vary
hugely, ranging from helping crops farmers to boost harvests, livestock keepers
to improve animal health and productivity, and forest coffee growers to reach
export markets, but core to all of them is a focus on the financial
sustainability of the farmers’ businesses and environmental sustainability.
