Our mission is to empower rural women farmers in Burkina Faso by providing essential equipment and training for agricultural independence.
FarmSahel collects used farm machinery donated by farmers in the United States and ships them to rural farmers in Africa, trains them in ecologically safe farming best practices. Farmsahel has developed a training model for agricultural education that encourages partnerships with US farmers to share their knowledge with our rural farmers. At Farmsahel we believe that farmer sponsorship has the power to drive change that ripples throughout farmers's lives, their families and their communities.
