FriendsNE would like to thank everyone who has invested in the organization since its inception in 2011. As many of you know we are a chapter of the New York based Friends of Students for 60,000 and are fortunate to have been nurtured and mentored by Peter White and other FSF60K members during the past three years. We have grown exponentially in that time and the organizations have mutually decided that it is in our best interest to register as an independent 501(c)(3). Over the course of the next few months, we will be rolling out our new name and new logo, but we will continue to focus on the work of empowering people and communities and developing programming that break the cycles of poverty. Additionally FNE will be merging with the Imagination Federation (IF) the Florida Friends chapter and will begin to oversee the Tengo un Sueño and Afternoon High School Program however the Miami based founders will remain involved in the programs.
Our website friendsne.org will stay online but please bookmark our new address: FNEinternational.org. You can follow our developments via our website, Facebook, and Twitter.
the FNE Team
Our mission is to work with impoverished communities to identify pressing needs, network with local and international organizations, facilitate collaboration, and empower individuals to actively participate within their communities.
In addition to our work abroad, FNE offers to give presentations throughout New England to raise awareness about poverty issues in the developing world. We are available to present to schools, civic and community groups as well as faith-based organizations about our work. For more information on having a presentation for your organization please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
