Farmers Helping Farmers is a nationally recognized, award-winning organization of community-minded people with an agricultural background from Prince Edward Island.

The group’s goal is to assist Kenyan farmers in becoming more self-reliant in agricultural food production. Together, they develop small-scale, practical agricultural projects, focusing on direct, person-to-person interaction, with little or no government structure.

Members of Farmers Helping Farmers volunteer their time to coordinate projects and help raise the necessary funds. Most projects that are undertaken are partnered with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).

They financially support the projects by contributing three dollars for every dollar raised.

Now, Farmers Helping Farmers is launching a carbon credit program. Read more about it here
