As mentioned in the last report, funding from other partners has enabled our teams in Sierra Leone and Liberia to begin operations on the ground. Basic training in kitchen gardening has begun for 475 rural women total, and training in backyard poultry rearing is underway for 200 women in Liberia.
In the last report, we also mentioned that efforts were underway to organize village nutrition committees. We are happy to report that in addition to the 25 village nutrition committees established in Liberia, we have organized 20 nuitrition awareness campaigns in Sierra Leone. The nutrition awareness campaigns bring essential health knowledge to rural women, which empowers them to better care for their families while they receive training in kitchen gardening and poultry rearing.
We still need your support to equip our trainees and future entrepreneurs with agriculture and livestock starter kits! Please make a donation to empower women in Liberia and Sierra Leone!
