ACDI/VOCA is pleased to announce USAID has selected the organization to lead the Feed the Future Ethiopia Alliance to Accelerate Agricultural Growth Activity. The four-year Activity will build on lessons learned from the previous Feed the Future Ethiopia Advanced Maize Seed Adoption Program, which ACDI/VOCA also implemented.

The Activity will work to increase the incomes and resilience of Ethiopian smallholder wheat and maize farmers and prioritize those who live in the Feed the Future Zone of Influence in four regional states, including Amhara, Oromia, Tigray, and Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples’ Region.

Our goal is to ensure access to improved seeds and mechanization services to an estimated 223,800 farmers, including 58,000 women, through services offered by the Activity and other value chain actors.

ACDI/VOCA will collaborate with private sector partners, including Ethio Lease, John Deere, Hello Tractor, and Corteva, to achieve these goals. ​​​​​​​
