Multiple Positions – One Acre Fund (Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi)

One Acre Fund is a start-up initiative that works with persistently hungry farm families in Kenya, Rwanda, and Burundi. Instead of giving handouts, One Acre invests in farm families to generate a permanent gain in farm income. Our “investment bundle” includes education, financing, inputs, and export market access.

One Acre Fund is looking to fill multiple positions, both in rural areas and Nairobi. We are looking for entrepreneurial, ambitious, and independent people who can be given large amounts of responsibility – immediately – to develop One Acre Fund’s program model. Expatriate staff have made significant contributions to our success, from building our monitoring & evaluation systems to scoping potential districts for expansion; from trialing new crops to managing and mentoring other staff. If you thrive in a fast-paced environment, have a strong work ethic, and are passionate about creating change in the lives of others, please consider joining our team!
