Position: Director of Program Innovation/ Interim COO, One Acre FundWanted: Early-career (3-10 years post-undergrad experience), ?elite? business professional to work in Africa
Work in Africa for One Acre Fund, an exciting non-profit that runs like a start-up business!
Organization Description: One Acre Fund is a start-up initiative in Kenya and Rwanda which works with persistently hungry farm families. Instead of giving handouts to families, One Acre invests in farm families to generate a permanent gain in farm income. Its “investment bundle” includes education, financing, inputs, and export market access.
One Acre Fund has been operating for 20 months, and currently serves 500 farm families (2,500 children). It will grow to change the lives of 30,000 families (150,000 children) within the next three years, scaling at a 50-100% growth rate thereafter.
Job Description: The Director of Program Innovation is the first “major” full-time hire for the organization, and will be essentially a partner to the founder, in laying the organization’s foundation. One Acre Fund’s day-to-day operations are currently run by 30+ (growing quickly) local field staff; the Director conversely, will be responsible for new program innovation and for laying infrastructure for long-term growth.
