Catalytic philanthropy results in One Acre Fund

Over the past two years, EVPA member Jazi Foundation financed the new country pilots of the One Acre Fund in Malawi and Uganda, involving 1000 smallholder farmer families each.


To realise these projects they worked inpartnership with Focusing Philanthropy (US), Pymwymic (NL) and invited several other donors.
