Farm Africa believes that Africa has the power to feed itself and that its smallholders hold the key to lasting rural prosperity. As a charity it works directly with farmers to help them unlock their potential to feed Africa’s people, using pioneering techniques that help to boost harvests, reduce poverty, sustain natural resources and help end Africa’s need for aid.
This year Farm Africa has teamed up with Marshal Papworth to provide places on our 10-week short course for eight carefully chosen candidates. The students from Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda will undertake the tailored course where they will learn about the use of mobile technology in agriculture, post-harvest management and technology, and the importance of good nutrition to support healthy growth and prevent illness.
Nigel Harris, CEO of Farm Africa, says: “This is an inspiring scheme which will bring all-round benefits to communities, funders and our own teams on the ground. Everyone will be a winner, including the rural communities where we work.”
