We’ve been working on the ground with rural African communities since 1988 and are proud to have established country programmes in Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia. The economies of many African countries are on the up. They are rich in natural resources and have young populations, full of innovative ideas. We want to make sure that, as Africa grows, its rural poor are not marginalised. We don’t want anyone being left behind.
