Our low-input, high-achieving approach means that our programmes can cost as little as £30 per person per year. The greatest input is training. Where necessary, we also provide locally bought seeds, tools and livestock.

By the time our projects end after (what is typically) a three year period, we expect the vast majority of farmers to be feeding their families and selling a surplus. They should be earning enough money to pay for their basic needs: education, better housing, food (when they can’t produce it themselves) and healthcare. They should be able to invest in their farms or a small business, and invest in savings to help them overcome shocks such as drought or disease.
