What is FFA?

Begun in 1971, the focus of the FFA today is to alleviate poverty by providing financial support and assistance to needy individuals and families through sponsorship and other outreach programs and related activities. The FFA is primarily active in India in the provinces of Kerala and Andra Pradesh.

Matthew – A Success Story

The family of Matthew was first sponsored in 2006. At the time they were living in a shack and Matthew was too weak to work. His wife was ill and food for the children was scarce. The monthly donation from their FFA sponsor provided the needed food and medicine for the family to heal and Matthew to regain his energy. The family received a new home through the FFA Seeds of Love program. In 2011, Matthew received a loan through the FFA micro-credit program to begin a banana chip business in his home – an endeavor he has thrown all his newfound energy into making succeed. Please enjoy this video of Matthew demonstrating his new business for his sponsors when they visited in 2011.
