Multiplying Food Security in Kenya

Samwel Odeyo was one such farmer, he started with the Maseno Project as a trainee farmer in his FFS in 2006. Soon after graduation in 2009, Samwel was trained to facilitate and has since worked as facilitator for several FFS.

Recently Samwel has been working further afield in the new Kericho region in Kenya, helping with the establishment of one of the new FFS there.

Mother's Day, Far Away

Mom never wanted the biggest piece of cake or the last scoop of ice cream. Mom never had to have the very latest fashion, nor did she require “the best”. She always took the least desirable seat at any event in preference to her family. Mom was always the first […]
