To improve technical knowledge, farm production and productivity and livelihoods of smallholder farmers in East Africa.


We envision a poverty-free, vibrant and sustainable food-secure world.


Our Approach

We take a multi-dimensional approach to addressing poverty and food insecurity, recognizing  that there is no single solution to this complex challenge. Our programs focus on the following  areas

Agriculture & Livelihoods

We support small-scale farmers to improve their  productivity, access markets and adopt sustainable practices. We provide training,  technical assistance and access to inputs, such as seeds, fertilizers, and tools.


We work to improve access to nutritious and diverse foods, especially for  vulnerable groups, such as women and children. We promote nutrition education and  behavior change, and we support the production and distribution of fortified foods.

Resilience & Climate Change

We help communities to adapt to climate change and build resilience against shocks and disasters. We promote Climate Smart Agricultural practices such  as conservation agriculture, soil and water management, agro-forestry, diversification and improved crop varieties. We also support the development of climate-smart  technologies. 

Policy & Advocacy

We work to influence policies and practices that affect food security, nutrition and poverty.

We advocate for policies that promote social and economic equity in addition to engaging with governments, donors, and other stakeholders to promote change for the good.

SAFI & the SDGs

Since our inception, we’ve been deeply committed to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a universal framework for a more equitable and prosperous future for all. Specifically, we are contributing directly to Goal 1 (No Poverty), Goal 2 (Zero Hunger) and Goal 13 (Climate Action), among others.

Our focus on SDG 1: No Poverty, lies at the core of our mission. We believe that by empowering individuals and communities to break free from the cycle of poverty, we can unlock a world brimming with potential. We promote economic growth through investing in production, value addition, innovation and entrepreneurship.

We created and support programs that empower women and youth to become entrepreneurs thus creating sustainable jobs and livelihoods.

SAFI's work was recongized at the African Youth SDGs Summit in Lusaka, Zambia winning the SDG Achiever's Award

At SAFI, we’re committed to nourishing not just bodies, but a brighter future for everyone. We recognize the critical role we play in achieving SDG 2: Zero Hunger. Our approach empowers farmers, promotes sustainable practices and encourages a thriving agricultural ecosystem actively contributing to a world where everyone has access to safe, nutritious food.

SAFI organizes and conducts comprehensive training programs for farmers. These programs equip farmers with the knowledge and skills to implement sustainable practices like soil health management, water conservation and integrated pest management. This not only improves yields and reduces reliance on harmful chemicals, but also promotes a healthier environment for future generations.

Our impact extends beyond the farm – we’re promoting crop diversification for better nutrition and building resilience through Climate-Smart Agriculture techniques. These strategies contribute to measurable results such as increased food security, reduced water usage and a more sustainable agricultural ecosystem.

SAFI’s contribution to SDG 13: Climate Action moves beyond awareness campaigns. We tackle climate change head-on through strategic tree planting initiatives. Community engagement is key. We involve locals, promote sustainable practices and advocate for change, making climate action a collective effort.

We have designed projects focused on areas most affected by deforestation and desertification in the Rwenzori region of Uganda. These projects not only increase forest cover, a vital tool in capturing carbon emissions, but also combat soil erosion and increase biodiversity through the planting of diverse native tree species.
