Your Grain Helps Others Grow
As a farmer, you probably wish you could give your help direct to poor families overseas. No middle man. No ‘overheads’. Just your grain on a ship to Africa or Asia.
Sadly, transport costs, custom duties and good development practice make this an impractical and inefficient way to help.
The good news is you can now help farmer to farmer through ALWS!
It’s easy. Simply transfer a portion of your harvest to ALWS, using the National Grower Register (NGR) system. ALWS will sell the grain donated by you and other Australian farmers, and use the proceeds to directly help farmers in ALWS-supported projects in countries like Cambodia, Burundi and South Sudan.
Your grain will generate farm essentials like improved seed varieties, basic farm tools, Farmer Field Schools in agricultural techniques, farm-start loans for rice-farming or vegetable-growing or raising pigs/chickens/ducks/even fish!
ALWS Farmers for Farmers means your grain helps others grow!

- Your grain will be combined with that from other generous Australian farmers, and sold for the best return immediately after harvest.
- Proceeds will support ALWS projects directly helping farmers in some of the world’s poorest countries, like Cambodia, Nepal, Burundi and South Sudan.
- ALWS will report back at the end of the Financial Year on prices realised, and farmers helped by the projects you support through Farmers for Farmers. Please note – donations of grain are not tax-deductible.
