Agricultural Youth Training CentrePrint
The Diaspora organization in the UK wishes to improve the welfare of war-affected children in Sierra Leone. SLWT partners with existing credible Sierra Leonean organisations, which already have logistics and administrative machinery in place. SLWT can channel its funds directly to its community-led projects, and provide their financial and technical support. The initial purpose of the Centre was to provide a training school for ex-child soldiers. The Centre reaches out to disadvantaged youth and offering them the opportunity to gain valuable farming and livestock rearing skills.
• Indirect result of the project is the job creation because of farm co-operatives and crime reduction in the community. Community members now want to be included in the project as well.
• construction of necessary infrastructure (school buildings, wells, office, poultry pen, pig pen, small reminant’s pen)
