What We Do

FarmSahel is working to empower rural women farmers in Burkina Faso by providing them essential tools for a more sustainable agriculture. According to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), 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, and children under 5 years old, as well as women suffer from chronic malnutrition. 

FarmSahel was founded in 2019 and received its 501c3 nonprofit status the same year and sponsored its first training program in Burkina Faso. FarmSahel is addressing the challenges facing rural female farmers by providing access to the tools and equipment needed to ensure growth in current agricultural climates; by offering training in modern farming techniques to expand crop growth, and in assisting in the development of international markets.
