In its fight against poverty and food insecurity in Africa, the Louis Dreyfus Foundation operates in countries characterized by large rural communities, where local smallholder farmers struggle to ensure a sustainable livelihood for themselves, their family and their communities, often due to adverse social, economic and climatic conditions.

Today, the Foundation is active across east, west and southern Africa, with a focus on micro-farming and education programs. The involvement of Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC) in some of our projects has been instrumental to their success, leveraging the company’s expertise and established presence, as have our partnerships with local or regional organizations and authorities. 

  • LDF started operating in Africa in 2013
  • Funding or running projects in 11 countries
  • 70,548 farmers involved 
  • 477,583 beneficiaries to date
