2020 Annual Report

Annual report
This is One Acre Fund's 2020 Annual Report, which took stock of our progress in a year like no other.

Like everyone, we adapted. Rather than expand to new markets, we focused on our current customers and were proud to maintain essential services for 1.3 million farm families.We came out of 2020 with an even deeper commitment to building for the future. Building farmer resilience means working to realize big harvests and helping farmers to absorb stresses to their livelihoods, like the pandemic. While farmers could still plant, many lost secondary revenue streams, like access to selling at fresh produce markets. So we took steps like ramping up our tree-planting efforts, which both build farmer assets (a tree grows in value over time) and mitigate climate change. In 2020, farmers planted 24 million trees as part of our campaign to plant 1 billion trees across Sub-Saharan Africa over the next 15 years.
