Considering the way most of us Americans eat, it’s nearly impossible to comprehend that a lot of people in this world rely on subsistence farming. In the U.S., a single farmer can easily feed about 100 people, yet across much of the world it takes an entire family’s work to feed a family. When Mother Nature stops playing nice, all of that work can be destroyed and the family may be left to go hungry. A big part of the difference in agricultural output has to do with technology, which is why One Acre Fund is working to bring farming technology to the developing world. They’re a non-profit based in New York, NY and Washington, DC, but they do most of their work in Kenya, Rwanda, and Burundi. One Acre Fund focuses on working directly with the poorest families–the ones that deal with hunger more than three months out of the year.
When One Acre Fund works with a farming family, they can typically increase agricultural output by 400%. That’s huge. In the best years it can push the families well beyond the subsistence level, and in the lean years it ensures that they have enough food to get through the hardest times. The organization has been around for about 6 years, and they now server more than 130,000 families. If you want to get into the details of how One Acre Fund’s program works, start reading here. This isn’t just some feel good program–One Acre Fund is delivering real results. If you’d like to join One Acre Fund’s fight against poverty, then head over to their Jobs page .
