In a Nutshell

Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA) is a leading Section 21 Non-Profit that addresses food security, greening and environmental sustainability. We have a large, diverse programme portfolio. The video down below illustrates the type of impact we try to achieve.

Our ethos is one of efficiency, transparency and accountability. We run our non-profit like a business / social enterprise and continue to innovate in the space. This approach has led to us being one of the best social development organisations on the continent.

After nearly 30 years experience in African social development, we understand what it takes to achieve real, long-term sustainability and want to make a positive difference to the lives of all Africans.
