The One Acre Fund website describes the nonprofit organization featured in The Last Hunger Season, which was founded in 2006 by Northwestern's Kellog School MBA graduate Andrew Youn, and John Gachunga, formerly a manager at microfinance institution Equity Bank.  Their model:  "We think that food aid is at best a temporary solution, and instead have put together a permanent, proven investment package for farmers and their families, which doubles farm income by providing seeds and fertilizer, weekly farm education, and market facilitation. This investment package is the core of our program."  Here is their photo and video gallery.
