2016 Country Specific Impact Report

Impact study
This report provides a detailed breakdown of One Acre Fund's 2016 program impact by country.

As reported widely in the news media, farmers all across East Africa struggled to realize strong harvests in 2016 due to droughts in the region. Maize was particularly hard hit, and both One Acre Fund and neighboring farmers saw an average reduction of 20%-30% in maize harvests (comparing 2016 to 2015) in the maize-predominant countries of Kenya and Tanzania. Therefore, farm profits were reduced overall, and One Acre Fund dollar impact was lower than we had expected.
