Farmers Helping Farmers Celebrates Volunteers

Farmers Helping Farmers has launched its annual call for nominations to recognize the
outstanding contributions of the organization’s volunteers, supporters and members. People are
encouraged to nominate for one of three awards presented by the organization.

Sandra MacKinnon, Awards Committee Chair states   “We are extremely fortunate to have individuals and groups working in partnership, and raising funds to assist with the challenges faced by many East African farm women and their families.  Our supporters work to benefit others and deserve our thanks and appreciation."

The awards are as follows:

1. “Friend of Farmers Helping Farmers Award” recognizes individuals and businesses who are
not members of Farmers Helping Farmers, but who have made a lasting and extending
contribution to the association. Contributions may be in the form of financial or in-kind. The
2013 recipient of this award were the Rotary Club of Stratford.

2. “Farmers Helping Farmers Youth Award” recognizes individuals (25 years and younger)
and youth groups (classrooms, 4-H, AY, Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, etc.) who have made
outstanding contributions to public awareness about Farmers Helping Farmers and its work in
Kenya. The successful nominee will be recognized for their extraordinary spirit that makes
their contribution an inspiration to others, and exemplifies citizenship and volunteerism. The
2013 recipient of this award was Ellen Moore, Murray River.

3. “Honourary Life Membership” recognizes members who have made an outstanding and
substantial contribution to the organization and its purpose. They have inspired and
encouraged others to be engaged, and have served as an example within the organization. Dr.
