MBAs Without Borders is fighting hunger with the help of MBA volunteer Annabel Khouri. She is helping to train new staff so the program can reach more farmers and 30,000 families in the next 3 years.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
In Bungoma, Kenya, MWB partner One Acre Fund’s goal is to eradicate the chronic hunger problem in Africa by providing an investment package that enables farm families to grow their way out of hunger, permanently. Instead of giving handouts, One Acre Fund provides farmers with the education, farm inputs and market access necessary to become self-sustaining and never go hungry again.
How will this project solve this problem?
Annabel's main project is to develop and implement a local staff recruitment and selection process as well as revise the existing orientation/training curriculum and performance management systems that the organization already has in place.
Potential Long Term Impact
If training of OAF's field officers with the MBA's selection, hiring and training process goes well, it should be able to replicated in other areas and work towards OAF's milestone of reaching 30,000 families in the next 3 years!
