FSK was established in 1981 through the initiative of the Nakuru Lay People Fellowship of the Africa Inland Church, Nakuru Regional Church Council. The main purpose was to reduce poverty through agricultural development, focusing on smallholder farmers who constitute 80% of the Kenyan farming community. FSK was registered in 1993 as a nongovernmental organization with the mandate of empowering farming communities in Kenya. The organization currently is headquartered in Nakuru with satellite offices in Baringo, Narok, Bomet, West Pokot and Laikipia. Farming community empowerment is achieved through improving their productivity to enhance incomes and food security through appropriate technologies. FSK targets the rural subsistence farmers who, to a great extent, lack the relevant knowledge, skills and opportunities to improve their productivity and market the products. FSK works with rural farmers’ self-help groups, providing them with technical advice, extension and affordable credit for crop and livestock enterprises. They are, however, integrated with large-scale farmers through major field days, visits and demonstrations.
