When farmers improve their harvests, they pull themselves out of poverty. They also start producing surplus food for their neighbors. When farmers prosper, they eradicate poverty and hunger in their communities.
One Acre Fund is growing quickly and we are proud to soon represent Africa’s largest network of smallholder farmers.
By 2020, we will serve at least 1 million farm families - with more than 5 million people living in those families. And our farmers will produce enough surplus food to feed another 5 million of their neighbors.
This is only the tip of the iceberg. When millions of farmers speak with one voice, we can more effectively pursue collaboration together with government and the private sector to broaden our reach.
Year of program launch: 2006 | Staff: 1,400 | Farmers served: 136,500
Kenya was our first country of operation, and serves as our first proof of concept. We will soon expand to cover all of Western and Nyanza Provinces, which are the primary food-producing regions and hold one third of Kenya’s 45 million people.
Kenya also serves as our global headquarters. One Acre Fund is proudly headquartered in a rural area of Kenya, near the Uganda border.
