We’ve moved! One Acre Fund is excited to have recently opened a new Kenya headquarters in Kakamega. Our organization has expanded rapidly in recent years, and as a result, we had outgrown our previous work spaces in nearby Bungoma. Now, our new office building will allow hundreds of staff to work together under one roof, enabling us to better serve farmers not only in Kenya, but in our other operating countries as well.

The office has some exciting design features that aren’t visible at first glance—it was modeled after a greenhouse, and the internal walls are made out of maize stalks and other farming byproducts. Many of the external walls can be opened up to the outdoors, allowing staff to breath fresh air and take in the beautiful countryside around them. We’ve also got a large canteen where staffers can eat lunch, outdoor working spaces, and an auditorium where we’re hosting everything from training sessions to employee movie nights.

To see the office for yourself, check out the video above. If you’d like to join us, we’re currently hiring for more than 50 open positions worldwide, including many in our Kakamega headquarters. Visit our Careers page to learn more!
