Banda Kiln Women of Tombo

Hello Globalgiving Community,
I wanted to share an update as we continue working on our documentary film project (The New Boats). Recently we followed one of our main characters (Wudie Bakie Koroma) as he visited the 'kiln women' of the Tombo community. they are all going to recieve a support package to help them as they recover from the devastation caused by the recent flooding in Tombo community.

The Minister of Fisheries and Marine Resources, Mrs. Emma Kowa-Jalloh in collaboration with the consortium of fishing unions made a timely and strategic intervention in lives of the Kiln Women locally called Banda Women in Tombo.

Tombo is the largest artisanal fishing port in Sierra Leone.

These women are responsible for most of the smoked/dry fish that we eat.

They play a very important role in the fisheries sector and help in may ways to ensures food security.

In Sierra Leone, we consume more dry/smoked fish than raw for fish, dry/smoked fish is a delicacy.

The amazing work of these Banda Women goes unnoticed, most often their faces are not seen and voices not heard, forgotten in the chain.

Kind Regards,
