Freedom From Hunger Campaign (FFHC) was established by the government of The Gambia in 1969 with the aim of improving the livelihood of peoples living in the Lower River Region (LRR) of the The Gambia. Over forty years later, FCC is still here, hard at work helping local institutions, particularly Women Groups, improve their agricultural and economic productivity.
FFHC is membership-based Non-Government Organization that operates largely on small- and medium-scale grants. We are an officially registered non-profit NGO and currently have 169 member organizations.
With decades of experience, FFHC has established an excellent reputation as an organization dedicated to sustainable, realistic development. We understand that no project will be successful without the full and willing participation of its beneficiaries, and thus hold strongly to our grass-roots philosophy. Only by working with the people can we eliminate hunger and bring sustainable development to The Gambia.
