Charity information


FARM-Africa works with poor rural communities in eastern Africa, helping them to grow more food, keep their livestock healthy and manage their natural resources sustainably.

Founded 1985

  • Mission statement

    FARM-Africa transforms the lives of African farmers, helping them to find a way out of poverty, permanently.

    FARM-Africa's vision is a prosperous rural Africa. We believe in working with those most in need to help them lead their own development. Our goal is to reduce poverty by enabling marginal African farmers and herders to make sustainable improvements to their well-being through more effective management of their natural resources.

  • Aims

    FARM-Africa aims to:

    • Demonstrably improve the practice of agricultural development by government, civil society and private sector staff.
    • Develop models of good practice in smallholder development, pastoral development and community forest management that demonstrably reduce poverty in diverse situations and with wide applicability.
    • Improve relevant government policies that inhibit the uptake of good practice and prioritisation of agriculture in public sector expenditure.
    • Increase understanding of, and engagement in, Africa agricultural development among the public, media, companies and organisation in the North and South.
