Why we need you 

As well as adapting to the ever-changing climate, farmers across eastern Africa are fighting against two devastating crises:

       1. A vast locust invasion

       2. The coronavirus pandemic

A survey undertaken in western Kenya confirmshowed that seven in ten farmers lost vital income because of the pandemic. Your sponsorship could help provide farmers with the knowledge and tools they need to build stronger, sustainable businesses that can thrive, even during a double crisis.

The future is uncertain, but together we are ready. 

Thank you for considering Farm Africa, your support is greatly appreciated 💚
