Jazi & Pymwymic co-fund One Acre Fund pilot in Uganda

Jazi & Pymwymic co-fund One Acre Fund pilot in Uganda

Carolyne Lunani harvests her maize in late August. With the maize she harvested, she now has enough food for the year and is able to pay for her children's school fees.

In 2013 Jazi Foundation and Pymwymic first came into contact with the One Acre Fund, a wonderful organisation very effectively supporting smallholder farmer families in eastern Africa (over 200,000 at the time of writing). We decided to unite and, early 2014, came together to create a giving circle to co-fund the pilot phase of a new country for the One Acre Fund, Malawi.

The pilot in Malawi is progressing very well and is quickly nearing completion with the upcoming harvest (read updates here). The result will not only be helping 939 farming families (approx 5,000 people) out of hunger. It also lays the foundation for the One Acre Fund to support many thousands more farming families at it soon progresses with the full country launch of Malawi.

A few months ago we got the opportunity to co-fund the pilot in another new country for the One Acre Fund, Uganda. We are proud that Jazi Foundation has, together with several other donors from our Jazi / Pymwymic community, donated the €90,000 needed.

This also marks the start of a new partnership with Focusing Philanthropy, a US based organisation, who have co-funded both Malawi and Uganda for the One Acre Fund together with us.
