Information:
The FFHC started its active operations in the country back in 1969 and was launched by the UN's FAO. It is an agricultural, registered NGO in Banjul which is focused on a number of areas related to farm food production and related structures.

These include the building of small bridges, ditches, water crossing points, grain stores etc.

They also promote the use of rice milling machines and environmental preservation. These measures are aimed at increasing the quantity of farm grown swamp cultivated rice in The Gambia and targeted at village self-sufficiency of this staple cereal grain.

The Freedom From Hunger Campaign is active in the Gambia's Central River Region, Western Region, North & South Bank, Lower and Upper River Regions.

Between 2011 and 2012 it was granted US$ 30,000.00 by the GEF Small Grants Programme to work on the "Expansion and consolidation of community forests in the Lower River Region". This funding was co-financed to the tune of US$ 24,132.00 by the FFHC.

The aim of the project is to preserve biodiversity through the consolidation and introduction of community forest management in twenty areas in the Kiang and Jarra Districts. It focused on villages that are within areas deemed to be prospective community forest regions which is estimated to have benefited 2,500 men and farmers.
