Your donation could help more farmers learn ways to increase their incomes, while protecting precious natural resources for future generations.
Our office is open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
Before you get in touch, there may be an answer to your question below.
Please note that due to limited resources, we’re not always able to respond to:
- requests for financial support from individuals
- unsolicited requests for funding and partnership outside of our current areas of operation
- speculative job and volunteering applications
- requests for information for school or university projects
- supplier enquiries.
Farm Africa currently works in five countries: Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and the DRC. We have an ambitious plan to grow and increase our impact over the next five years. We plan to scale up and hope to increase our footprint so that we work in a total of six countries by 2020. Find out more by reading our strategic plan.
We cannot respond to individual requests to undertake work in other locations.
We are delighted when people want to support Farm Africa and are inspired to learn more about our work. We believe that Africa’s farmers have the power to lift themselves out of poverty, and are proud that most of our staff and any volunteers are local to the project area and understand the local conditions, challenges and opportunities.
As a focused and technical organisation, we are only able to offer overseas opportunities if there is a specific need that requires particular skills and expertise. Typically these will be for experts from the agricultural or food sector who will work on a time-limited piece of research or consultancy.
We have a range of opportunities in the UK for volunteer placements and internships. These include fundraising support, communications, helping with our events and research.
You can be assured that we do not sell our donors’ details to other organisations.
When you provide your details we store them securely on our database. We only use these details to contact you about your giving, Farm Africa’s work and how you can support us, unless you ask us not to. You can get in touch with our Supporter Services Team at any time to let us know when and how you would like us to contact you or if you would like to be removed from our mailing list by emailing them on: email@example.com. More information about data protection can be found here.
In 2018, our total income was £18.1 million and expenditure was £16.3 million. Farm Africa's expenditure falls into four main categories:
- Costs of implementing our programmes on the ground in Africa (£11.1 million in 2018
- Fundraising costs (£0.8 million in 2018)
- Support costs, including head office staff and governance (£1.1 million in 2018)
- Costs incurred by Sidai, our Kenyan social enterprise subsidiary company (£3.4 million in 2018)
Farm Africa is committed to ensuring that we use our funds wisely and get the maximum impact for every pound we spend. We apply a value for money framework to manage the main identified cost drivers carefully.

We are not a relief agency. However, since we operate in remote and often marginalised areas, we may be the only NGO present when an emergency strikes. As such, we are well placed to raise the alarm and advocate rapid responses from specialist relief agencies, and sometimes provide emergency support.
We are an operational NGO and not a grant-giving organisation, so we cannot respond to unsolicited requests for funds.
Yes, it is sometimes possible to link up with Farm Africa as part of your research, depending on the area of research and the capacity within our project teams. Please send a letter explaining the purpose of your research on the headed paper of your institution to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to tell us about a product or service that you think we might be interested in then please contact us via the form below, providing as much information as possible. Our central support staff will direct the information to relevant colleagues within Farm Africa who will contact you in the event that your product or service could be beneficial to their work.
Farm Africa strives to provide the best service possible to anyone who comes in contact with the organisation. We always value any feedback from our supporters, in the form of comments, suggestions or complaints. All such feedback is recorded and reviewed regularly and we endeavour to learn from feedback and to address any issues raised fairly and efficiently.
Farm Africa is registered with the Fundraising Regulator, and is committed to best practice in fundraising. As such, we aim to adhere to the Code of Fundraising Practice, as established by the Institute of Fundraising.
Where your concerns relate to fundraising, you should initially contact our complaints co-ordinator, Kate Prowse, on email@example.com. Once we have received your complaint, you will receive an initial acknowledgement within two working days, and we will aim to make an initial response (after investigation) within five working days.
