B4FA is reaching out and wishes to build partnerships with all those whose activities touch on the development of agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa, from regulators, researchers and scientists through all aspects to agri-industry and those whose activities impact agriculture including banks, finance organisations, potential investors and IT entrepreneurs. To this end, we are working to establish partnerships with a relevant, select group with whom to work to contribute to the development of the potential of African agriculture.


B4FA is extremely grateful for the generous support of the Malaysian Commonwealth Studies Centre in Cambridge, a charity, established in 1995, that focuses upon affordable education, affordable healthcare, sustainable development, including food security and mitigating climate change and the promotion of electoral democracy and good governance.

B4FA is grateful for the generosity of the John Templeton Foundation which funded B4FA between 2013 and 2017. The John Templeton Foundation serves as a philanthropic catalyst for discoveries relating to the Big Questions of human purpose and ultimate reality. The Foundation takes a particular interest in how major advances in genetics might serve to empower individuals, leading to spiritually beneficial social and cultural changes.

B4FA is also grateful for the generosity of the Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture (SFSA) which supported the B4FA Newswire in 2018–2019. SFSA works to create value for resource-poor small farmers in developing countries through innovation in sustainable agriculture and the activation of value chains.
