Country Staff: 130 | Farmers served: 65,000

Ethiopia - Input Delivery Farmers pick their tree seedlings from a tree nursery in Gonji, in Ethiopia's Amhara region.

With more than 115 million people, landlocked Ethiopia is Africa’s second-most populous nation after Nigeria, and the fastest growing economy in Sub-Saharan Africa. Some 80 percent of Ethiopians are engaged in agriculture, forming the country’s economic foundation and accounting for half of the gross domestic product, mainly in subsistence and rain-fed farming and livestock production.

One Acre Fund works with tree nursery entrepreneurs and farmer cooperatives to increase the availability of economically valuable trees and improved seed to smallholder farmers in the country’s Amhara Region, through collaborative research, access to inputs, field support, and market facilitation — all in partnership with the regional government.
