You are done!

Wait 2-4 weeks and then check your mail. You’ll receive your tax deductible receipt that you need for filing your taxes.

 

Step 4: You can follow online to see how your equipment is being used

We will upload pictures of our farmers using the equipment and each equipment will be listed with its origin, to show you that we are forever grateful. 

Why is your help important?

 

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, Africa has less than two tractors per 1000 ha of cropland. 70% of the farmers cultivate parcels of less than two hectares by hoe.

 

Most smallholder farmers in Africa grow a mix of crops using traditional farming methods, rely on saved seeds and those purchased from local sources, and use little by way of external inputs, such as synthetic fertilizers.

 

Their struggles are typical. Pests perpetually threaten their family’s food security and the small income they earn from selling part of their harvest. 

 

Rather than sending money, we collect your donated equipment and deliver it and train rural farmers to use it.  

Your used farming equipment along with our training will help solve this problem. 

 

Mechanization can help unlock underutilized agricultural potential. Our challenge at FarmSahel is to come up with ways that enable smallholder-farmers who can’t afford to buy their own equipment to access equipment like tractors.
