Our Mission is to support sustainable livelihoods for Africa’s smallholder farmers


What We Do

Agriculture & Nutrition

Over 70% of Africa’s poorest people live on small farms. We help these farming families achieve their potential to grow much more and earn more from their land.


We bring communities together - working as a cooperative means farmers can access new markets and earn a better income from their produce.


We’re working to level the gender field in sub-Saharan Africa. When women receive the same support as men, yields increase 20–30%.


We invest in people – providing access to small loans through microfinance gives impoverished rural families the means to improve their farms, so they can grow, eat and sell more.

climate smart

Those least responsible for climate change are the most affected by global warming. We support vulnerable communities to adapt to changing climate, through climate smart agricultural techniques.


We nurture small businesses and encourage enterprise, enabling households to earn a vital alternative source of income.
