• Where we work

    East Africa

In East Africa, Lutheran World Relief helps poor farming families get more out of the agricultural value chain.

From growing coffee and cocoa to strawberries and beans, farmers and cooperatives are bolstering their incomes by learning better methods for planting, irrigating, harvesting, processing, and marketing their crops.

We also prepare young farmers for future careers in agriculture and related businesses, and make the most of smartphone technology so that farmers are equipped with the most up-to-date information about weather forecasts, market data, composting and crop disease identification and treatment, and more.
