金沙手机app平台 Farm Africa started by providing goats on credit to poor families. One of their goat's kids was returned to Farm Africa and given to another family.

In 1985, Sir Michael Wood and David Campbell, who shared a vision of a prosperous rural Africa, established Farm Africa in response to the famine in Ethiopia.

Identifying that food is the best medicine, they believed that developing small-scale agriculture is the key to reducing rural poverty.

In 1987, Farm Africa started work with nomadic pastoralists in the remote north of Kenya, expanding to Ethiopia a year later.

Initially we focused on assisting extremely poor widows and their children. We helped them by providing goats on credit – one of their goat's kids was returned to Farm Africa and given to another family.

Access to veterinary services meant the goats were healthy and produced plenty of nutritious milk. This success led to other similar projects in Kenya and Tanzania.

Our work is entirely focused on eastern Africa. Today we operate in Uganda and DR Congo, as well as continuing our programmes in Kenya, Tanzania and Ethiopia. We previously worked in the world's newest country, South Sudan, but were unable to continue our work there due to ongoing conflict.
