Shared Success: Agricultural Transformation @10

The Shared Success photography collection offered genuine insight into the diverse range of farming communities and institutions that have been supported by AGRA and Rockefeller Foundation over the past decade. The collection captures the triumphs of men, women, and communities that have benefitted from the steady transformation taking place in Africa’s agricultural sector.

Margaret and other farmers in the area deliver their grain to Mukothima Grain Aggregation Centre, set up with the help of AGRA. By selling in bulk through grain aggregation centres, farmers are able to fetch higher prices for their harvest. Mwangi Kirubi/Arete/Rockefeller Foundation/AGRA

  • Joyce Anyango Otieno (L) advices Caroline Atieno on the best maize farming practices at her farm in Siaya County, Kenya, on 21st July 2016. Joyce received training on the same from Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organisation in partnership with AGRA.

  • Joyce Anyango Otieno plays with her children at her home in Siaya County, Kenya, on 21st July 2016. Joyce received training on the best maize farming practices from Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organisation in partnership with Agra. TWith profits from her increased harvests, Joyce has built a house, paid for her children's school fees and uniform, and bought pigs, goats and cows to supplement her income from maize. Joyce also supports three orphans from her community. Mwangi Kirubi/Arete/Rockefeller Foundation/AGRA

Leah delivers her harvest to the Mukothima Grain Aggregation Centre which was set up with the help of AGRA. Thanks to the higher price per kilo she gets for her harvest, Leah has educated her 6 children. Photo Credit: Karel Prinsloo
  • Ann Munala, an agro dealer in Luanda Market, Kenya is one of the leading lime-based fertilizer merchants in the region. Ann has helped educate farmers on the benefits of planting in nutrient-rich soils after receiving training from the Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organization in partnership with AGRA. Ann testifies that she has seen farmers grow their harvest exponentially through the lessons she's shared with them. Photo Credit: Mwangi Kirubi

  • Workers prepare cassava to be loaded onto a truck for processing at the farm of Aolil Pedro in Murrupula Mozambique. Pedro took part in an AGRA program that allowed them to gain access to a small amount of land along with farming new varieties of disease-resistant cassava. The AGRA program also helped to develop 11 new varieties of cassava, now being used around the country. The program also connected farmers with resources to find places to sell their cassava.

Food security is critical for both human welfare and economic growth in Africa. About 70 percent of sub-Saharan Africans depend on agriculture for their livelihoods—and smallholder farmers account for 90 percent of food production in sub-Saharan Africa. Yet, many farmers barely produce enough food to feed their families, leaving no money for investing in tools and technologies that could increase yields. As a result, increases in staple crop production, wide scale marketing of surpluses and value-added businesses have not been sustained in Africa as in many other regions of the world. By supporting new scientific advances in human nutrition and food production, and carrying forward our commitment to a Green Revolution in Africa, The Rockefeller Foundation is committed to reaching hundreds of millions of people with nourishing food while improving the sustainability of the global food system.

In 2006, The Rockefeller Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation partnered to launch the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), based on a shared vision that investing in agriculture is the surest path to reducing poverty and hunger in Africa. AGRA built on the lessons learned during almost a century of working on agricultural development and rural poverty. The initiative aimed to tackle the African agriculture problem by implementing more widespread use of high-yielding crop varieties. Additional work would focus on productive seed combinations, added soil nutrients from improved fertilizers, and involvement of farmers in breeding, testing, and selecting seeds suitable to Africa’s various regions.

AGRA also acknowledged that conditions in Africa were different from those in Asia and Latin America, requiring a different approach for the new Green Revolution. Given the poor soil quality in Africa, a key objective was promoting regenerative and biodiverse practices to protect the environment and to conserve and promote the diversity of African crops. It also took into account that most of the smallholder farmers are women and worked to ensure their access to land, appropriate technologies, and affordable finance.

As AGRA developed, the Gates and The Rockefeller Foundation partnership provided critical funding that allowed AGRA to expand its work. Strategically, the Alliance concentrated investment in the “breadbasket region” of four main countries: Ghana, Mali, Mozambique, and Tanzania. It also supported work in South Africa, Malawi, Zambia, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Nigeria, Niger, and Burkina Faso. Reflecting the historic pattern of the most successful Rockefeller Foundation initiatives, AGRA’s core funding expanded to include resources provided by governments as well as other agencies and international institutions.

By 2010, AGRA worked in 13 countries, pursuing a system-wide approach to stimulate gains in the quantity and quality of food crops in sub-Saharan Africa. Its Market Access Program resulted in greatly increased income and decreased food insecurity for farming families. Since 2012, AGRA is an independent organization, with its own board and governance structure whose approach and leadership are uniquely African.
