Why we’re doing this
Imagine if a place you love in your local area was taken from you and sold off. No warnings. No compensation. And nothing you could do about it. You’d be outraged. You’d call it an injustice. But this is the reality for thousands of families across Africa and beyond.
Right now, companies are buying up huge areas of land across the world. The trouble is, too often these deals lead to land grabs – which force farmers from their land and homes, and leave them with no way to grow food or earn a living.

In just ten years, land deals have been done on an area the size of Italy. That amount of land could produce enough food to feed millions of people, every year.
