    Reports To:
  • Shop Supervisor

    Organization Description:

    Most of the world’s poor are farmers, representing the largest and most uniform group of poor people in the world.

    One Acre Fund is a growing NGO in Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Malawi, Zambia and Tanzania that is innovating a new way of helping farm families to achieve their full potential. Instead of giving handouts, One Acre Fund invests in farmers to generate a permanent gain in farm income.

    We provide farmers with a “market bundle” that includes education, finance, farm inputs and solar lights, and market access.

    Our program is proven impactful-every year, we weigh thousands of harvests and measure 50-100% average gain in farm income per acre. We have laser-like focus on generating better lives for the people that we serve.

    We are growing quickly. In ten years, we have grown to serve over 600,000 farm families with more than 6,000 full- time field staff.

    Our approach has won widespread validation, winning grants from The Master Card Foundation and Gates Foundation.
