School Twinning

School Twinning

Farmers Helping Farmers developed a School Twinning program in 2004 in the areas of the agricultural projects we fund. We began to realize the impact our projects were having on the local schools. Several of our members made a commitment to share what they had learned in Africa with students in Prince Edward Island.

The School Twinning program has expanded to now include 14 schools in Kenya—partnered with schools and Sunday schools on P.E.I., as well as schools in Alberta and Ontario!

Students from each school exchange letters and photos that encourage a better understanding of each other, including different cultures and global issues. These partnerships have given both Island and Kenyan students a greater understanding of each other’s way of life and Island students more appreciation of things they may have taken for granted.

Funds Raised

P.E.I. School Twinning partners have improved conditions in each of the Kenyan schools – through the purchase of textbooks, mosquito nets, desks, water tanks, seeds, cementing of classroom floors, glass in windows, and the building of latrines.

The efforts by so many children and youth are really appreciated in each of these schools!
