One Acre Fund's mission is to pull farming families out of poverty.
They do this by working with low-income farming community groups predominantly in East Africa and providing a bundle of support, which includes training, credit and access to markets. This allows farming families to increase their crop yields, improve their food security and increase their incomes. The additional revenue created is often used for school fees, more diverse food products, new businesses and farm activities, and medical expenses.
