FPARM was birthed out of the desire to strengthen poverty-stricken families through unconventional routes and to promote self-sustainability. We recognize the distress in wanting to overcome poverty, but being unable to do so, due to lack of resources and access. Our organization wants to provide opportunities particularly in the areas of skilled based training and small scale business ventures. We hope to be the vessel that empowers families for a lifetime.
