The National Farmers Union in England plans to organize a London Marathon to help eastern African farmers run profitable agricultural businesses.
Also, the government of the United Kingdom will also provide funds to Farm Africa to support Ugandan farmers in coffee farming. Moreover, it will help women farmers in gaining access to land, improve their profitability, and invest in businesses.
Participants of the London marathon will serve as a bridge to help women farmers connect to the business side of agriculture to earn as much as men farmers.
