FFF is a non-profit organization that supports community initiatives by promoting the establishment of sustainable systems that help improve the livelihood and living conditions of underserved communities. We have been determined to make an impact in one community at a time. These communities are often forgotten by most help organizations due to their location and accessibility. The core of our efforts is to bring our team’s fresh ideas and passion to the range of activities we’re involved in. Through all of our endeavors we hope to display the conviction behind our beliefs. We currently work in a remote rural village in the Southwestern part of Madagascar where people are still living in extreme poverty, with no infrastructure and victims of drought. We are working to find grants for building a school with sanitation facilities and providing water supplies pair with a project promoting cultivation of trees and vegetable garden to help with the villagers livelihood, water supply and retention.
