In honor of Father's Day, we'd like you to meet Sadick, a single father who cares for 12 children. His remarkable story of how farming changed his family's fortunes → http://bit.ly/1SwhAWG
Getting youth interested in farming isn't always easy. So when Tanzanian farmer Sadick Kiyao's decided to try something new on his farm, he had no idea his decision would inspire his own sons to follow in his footsteps.

“I now look forward to the future with hope, knowing that my family will not go hungry again. I no longer have to work on anyone’s farm just to provide for my family, and I’ll be able to send my grandchildren to school!” – Rosemary Wanjala, a smallholder farmer from Kenya shares her story → http://bit.ly/17Ht0no
In August 2014, around the same time Jean was considering abandoning agriculture in search of something more profitable, the Rwanda Agricultural Board was launching a new program, in collaboration with One Acre Fund. The program was called Twigire Muhinzi Extension, and the purpose was to help farmers like Jean improve their agriculture practices by offering group trainings at the village level.

We recently spent an evening with 4 smallholder farmers to see why #solar lamps have quickly become one of our most popular products → http://bit.ly/1RYfoXC
Today, in countries like Kenya, 70 percent of the population lives without electricity. To light their homes, farmers rely mostly on kerosene, which is costly and damaging to their health and the environment. Here, four farmers explain why they've made the switch from kerosene to solar.

One Acre Fund serves smallholder farmers. In everything we do, we place the farmer first.
Introduction

One Acre Fund supplies smallholder farmers with the financing and training they need to grow their way out of hunger and poverty.

Instead of giving handouts, we invest in farmers to generate a permanent gain in farm income. We supply a complete service bundle of seeds and fertilizer, financing, training, and market facilitation—and we deliver these services within walking distance of the 280,000 rural farmers we serve.

We measure success in our ability to make farmers more prosperous and we always put Farmers First.  www.oneacrefund.org
