What We Do

What We Do

FarmSahel was founded in 2019 to empower rural women farmers in Burkina Faso by offering them training in modern farming techniques to expand crop growth, and assisting them in the development of international markets.

Why We Do It

Burkina Faso’s agriculture sector continues to generate roughly a third of the country’s GDP and employs 80 percent of the population, more than 3.5 million people. Roughly 20 percent of the population are food insecure, with many women and children under 5 years old suffering from chronic malnutrition.

How We Do It

Farmer Sponsorship

We provide seeds, fertilizer and training to women farmers using an online sponsorship model of $24 per donor per month.

Agribusiness Education

Our unique curriculum trains, educate and engage at-risk and very low-income women in agribusiness.

Equipment Donations 

We source used ag equipment for farmers in Burkina Faso, donated by farmers in the United States
