We serve smallholder farmers. In everything we do, we place Farmers First.
Farmers are the key to ending hunger and poverty in our lifetime. Poverty today is concentrated in one profession: farming. Most people living on $1 a day are farmers.
In Sub-Saharan Africa, more than 50 million families earn a living from small farms, which produce 80 percent of the continent’s food. But harvests still lag far behind the rest of the world.
This is a huge opportunity. Farmers who use optimal seed and agriculture techniques can grow much more on the same plot of land. We just need to get proven tools’ in farmers hands.
One Acre Fund supplies farmers with everything they need to grow more food and earn more money. Most farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa live in just eight countries -- Nigeria, Ethiopia, and the six countries of the Lake Victoria basin -- and we operate in all of them.
With more productive farms, farmers can feed their families and sell any surplus. They can plant valuable crops, like trees, and build assets over time. With more income, farmers can invest in their children’s education and build businesses in their communities.
Farming is the engine of the continent’s development. When we make it more productive, we provide millions of families a path to prosperity.
