Seeds, fertilizer, financing, training, and market facilitation - all are meticulously bundled into a comprehensive service package delivered to the doorsteps of over 1 million rural farmers.
Rather than offering mere handouts, One Acre Fund extends a hand up. With unwavering commitment, they invest in smallholder farmers, equipping them with the resources and knowledge needed to cultivate more food and secure a brighter financial future.
Originating in Kenya in 2006, One Acre Fund has grown exponentially, reaching out to now serve an impressive 1.5 million hardworking smallholder farmers across nine countries. But their mission is more than just numbers; it's rooted in their heartfelt dedication to rural communities. Their headquarters find homes in these very communities, and 94% of their staff reside among those they serve - a testament to their genuine commitment.
Every farmer's journey is unique, and One Acre Fund understands this intimately. Their “farmers first” approach underscores their pledge to tailor their programs, responding to the dynamic needs of each community and farmer. In a world where extreme poverty disproportionately affects farmers, this approach is not just a strategy; it's a lifeline.
Envisioning a future of bountiful harvests and thriving families, One Acre Fund recognizes the immense potential in Africa's farms. With over 50 million farm families in Sub-Saharan Africa, the opportunity for transformation is colossal. By enhancing productivity and prosperity, these farmers become agents of change, combating poverty and food insecurity with their own hands.
Generous contributions over the last two years have enabled One Acre Fund to reach over 1.4 million farmers. Their ethos of placing Farmers First resonates in every endeavor, reflecting their belief that farmers hold the key to eliminating hunger and poverty in our lifetime.
In their actions, One Acre Fund exemplifies Integrity, aligning words with values. With a humble beginning in Kenya, they've grown into a powerful force for change across Africa. Their impact has been profound, and their journey inspiring. One Acre Fund, a name synonymous with empowerment, stands as a testament to what can be achieved when farmers are given the tools to flourish.
