Who we are

Kilimo Trust is an East Africa-based not-for profit organization that was established in 2005 to contribute to broad-based wealth creation through agriculture and agribusiness development. Our mission is to “catalyze the growth and competitiveness of strategic agricultural sectors for the benefit of a large number of people in East Africa that include Men, Women and Youth.” We are an evidence-based organization with competent and committed staff.

We are also committed to partnerships that seek to make a socially responsible impact.

Our core business is to transform food and nutrition security in the EAC region from high risk subsistence farming into lower risk trade-based systems
