Our mission : To improve food security by educating youth and women in Africa with innovative practices to alleviate Africa‘s growing population, urbanization and climate change challenges.

The African Association for Vertical Farming (AAVF) is an internationally active non-profit organization comprised of individuals, companies, research institutions and universities that connects with interested parties all over the world to build a strong community in order to assist Africa in its quest for secure and sovereign food production.

Our four Pillars Focus in Africa are:

1-Agri Business

Promoting the success of African farmers by connecting them to markets in and outside of Africa.

2- Agriculture, Education and Training

With our Education and Training Department, we develop skills for youth and women to start growing local food sustainably. We organize Agroecology workshops in Africa for young farmers in topics such as good agriculture practices, controlled grazing systems, Integrated Pest Management, conservation tillage, crop rotation, mulching, cover crops, water use efficiency and soil nutrient management. We also introduce alternative ways of production to smallholder farmers.

3) Research, Development & Technology in Agriculture

The AAVF presents, trains and advocates modern farming, state of the art technologies and methods as tools to galvanize the agriculture industry; and encouraging African farmers to stay in the industry and help revolutionize it.

4) Humanitarian Support : Youth and Women Empowerment through sustainable agriculture

Our platform is tied to the Youth & Women of Africa in agriculture. Supporting their effort so that agriculture, using modern but easy to manage technologies, can be seen as an empowering tool for better yields thus economical elevation for the communities.
