#ReMEMBER Campaign Day 1

Hint: This member most recently had Chef Michael Smith host their event and raised over $28,000 to build a school cookhouse in rural Kenya. Can you guess who they are? If you haven't already guessed, here are some photos to help you out!

Sharing knowledge with local Kenyan farmers

The Basics: FHF is a community-minded people from PEI assisting East African farmers abroad. The organization grew out of a conference that took place in 1979. They have a growing list of projects from school twinning (Canadian schools partner with Kenyan schools) to their annual Village Feast. This feast brings together local chefs to put on a meal that showcases local food and raises funds to build cookhouses in rural Kenya. These are just a couple of the projects FHF run. WHY WE LOVE FHF:

  • Just 2-3% of funds raised goes towards administrative costs

  • FHF has no staff; it's run purely by the good hearts of volunteers

  • They take a hands-on approach to helping those in rural Kenya; they've partnered with UPEI to send students to volunteer in Kenya

i want to spend more time with FHF:

  • a documentary with Michael Smith about behind-the-scenes work for the Village Feast

  • a blog featuring FHF's adventures in Kenya
