STRONG FARMERS, VIBRANT COMMUNITIES
One Acre Fund
One Acre Fund is a non-profit social enterprise that supplies financing and training to help smallholders grow their way out of hunger. Founded in Kenya in 2006, the organisation has evolved to now serve over 1 million smallholder farmers across six countries in Eastern and Southern Africa. One Acre Fund has doubled its reach in Rwanda since we began supporting it in 2016. Today, its ambitious strategy aims to reach roughly 1.5 million farmers, and a third of the country’s smallholder families, by 2022.
One Acre Fund provides smallholder farmers living in remote rural areas of East Africa with access to improved seed, fertiliser and agricultural training, as well as financing and market facilitation. This enables them to improve their crop yields and quality of life within one growing season.
