AGRA is an alliance led by Africans with roots in farming communities across the continent. We understand that African farmers need uniquely African solutions designed to meet their specific environmental and agricultural needs so they can sustainably boost production and gain access to rapidly growing agriculture markets.
AGRA’s vision is that Africa can feed itself and the world. We are dedicated to changing the reality of agriculture in Africa, from farming as a solitary struggle to survive, to farming as a business that thrives.
For nearly 10 years, AGRA’s work across 18 countries was focused on distinct problems related to seed production, soil health, and agriculture markets that were so profound and had been neglected for so long that they required a concentrated effort to resolve. Our results have been impressive. Now, we’re embarking on an ambitious and more integrated approach in select countries.
All of AGRA’s work is conducted through partnerships—with farmers, farmer organizations, community leaders, agricultural researchers, national and local governments, businesses, civil society groups, philanthropies, international organizations and donor countries.
