Farming Supplies and Training

Gives a year of farm support for 1 family
Gift Description:
This farm program for one family provides a year of financing for farm inputs, distribution of seed and fertilizer, training on agricultural techniques, and market facilitation to maximize profits from harvest sales. We provide a complete set of services within walking distance of the farmers we serve. Many farms in poor areas are subsistence farms that are intended to solely feed one family, but turning a subsistence farm into an output-producing farm is the most effective way to ensure the health and future of the family. By producing crops to sell, families earn an income and can start affording other supplies such as medicine and school for their children. Your gift will change one family's life forever by helping lift them out of the poverty trap through farm training and support.

One Acre Fund
Detroit, MI
One Acre Fund serves small-scale farmers, because when farmers improve their harvests, they pull themselves out of poverty and start producing surplus food to help their neighbors. When farmers prosper, they eradicate poverty and hunger in their communities. OAF is growing quickly and will serve at least 1 million farm families by 2020—with more than 5 million people living in those families. Those farmers will produce enough surplus food to feed another 5 million of their neighbors.
