NATURE & ENVIRONMENT - SOCIAL ISSUES

In the beginning was the farmer

The One Acre Fund serves small-scale farmers. In everything they do, they place the farmer first.  And they measure success in their ability to make more farmers more prosperous. They meet them in their fields. They bring together the best leaders and build long-term careers. Last but not least, they envision serving millions of farm families.

Kenya was their first country of operation, and serves as their first proof of concept. Kenya also serves as their global headquarters. One Acre Fund is headquartered in a rural area of Kenya, near the Uganda border.They are expanding 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. The numbers are impressive : with a staff 1.400 collaborators, the farmers served are no less than 135.000.
