Organization Description

One Acre Fund is an agricultural NGO that is innovating a new way of helping farm families to achieve their full potential. In more than five years in Rwanda, we have grown to serve 100,000 farm families with more than 1,000 full-time field staff. We provide farmers with a "market bundle" that includes education, finance, seed and fertilizer, and market access. Our program is proven impactful – every year, we weigh thousands of harvests and measure 50-100% average gain in farm income per acre. We only serve farmers, and we always put Farmers First.

As we grow, it becomes necessary to centralize and systematize local employee development across the program. In Rwanda, all local staff development will fall under the umbrella of “TUBURA University,” which aims to be the premier employee leadership program in Rwanda. Training and Development Manager will help to implement this vision.
