African Philanthropy Forum (APF) is dedicating Day 2 of its 2020 Conference holding from October 28 – 30 to discussing strategies for increased food security on the Continent. Beyond this, APF is leveraging the Conference to launch a fundraiser in support of FarmGro Africa which is on the frontlines of driving food production in Kenya.

FarmGro Africa is an Agri-Technology firm based in Bungoma, Kenya it uses innovative and appropriate agricultural technologies to improve the livelihoods of rural communities.

With the funds provided, FarmGro Africa plans to:

* Scale up the re-establishment of green houses
