      Growing Futures helps young people in western Kenya set up profitable farming enterprises growing and selling vegetables that are in high demand.

      Through the project, Farm Africa is helping 2,500 young farmers in Trans-Nzoia County and 2,000 young farmers in Elgeyo Marakwet County capitalise upon the growing demand for produce such as French beans, mangetouts, kale, tomatoes and cabbages.

      We help the farmers increase their yields and the quality of their vegetables, and build their links to markets.

      ADVANCING AGRICULTURE

      The project provides training and technical assistance in horticulture and agronomy, helping young farmers produce the quantity and quality of produce demanded by high-value buyers and certification schemes. We are:

      • Providing farmers with access to agricultural technologies, such as drip-irrigation systems, fertilisers, seed and pesticides.
      • Teaching farmers how to sustainably produce high-value crops through a mixture of peer-to-peer learning on farmers’ plots and instructor-led lessons on local demonstration plots.

      BUILDING BUSINESSES

      Growing Futures develops young farmers’ business skills and widens their access to finance by:

      • Providing training in business development, financial and group management to prepare enterprises for growth.
      • Setting up credit schemes, such as Village Saving and Loan Associations and Savings and Credit Cooperatives, where farmers unite to save and make funds available to invest in each other’s businesses.

      BOOSTING TRADE

      Growing Futures strengthens farmers’ links with buyers in domestic and international markets by:

      • Delivering Global Good Agricultural Practice (GLOBALGAP) training to farmers to help them meet export markets’ standards.
      • Helping farmer groups secure export contracts, which guarantee a market for their produce.
      • Training community-based organisations in aggregation, trade and marketing so that they can sell farmers’ produce in bulk.

      This project is funded by Aldi UK, Medicor Foundation and UK aid from the UK government.

      Aldi started working with Farm Africa in 2016, donating over £260,000 over three years to support 500 young farmers in Trans Nzoia County in Western Kenya. In 2020, Aldi extended their support to these and other farmers for another two years.  

      Additional funding from Medicor and UK Aid in 2017-18 enabled Growing Futures to expand into two further regions of Kenya, reaching another 4,000 young farmers.

      The Growing Futures project builds upon the success of Farm Africa’s Youth Empowerment in Sustainable Agriculture (YESA) project, which ran from 2011 to 2015, supporting 2,300 young people in western Kenya to set up and run their own farms.
