We’re pleased to announce that our 100 acre farm in Sierra leone has began to produce for the Kono youth. We recently visited the youth and the farm with Greener Diamond endorser Johnny littlefield and couldn’t be happier about the progress being made.
From our friends at YAI:
Close to 500 youth benefiting from YAI’s agriculture project in Kono District, Sierra Leone have begun harvesting rice and other crops planted thanks to Youth Action International with support from The Greener Diamond.
Through Youth Action International’s sustainable agriculture program, the young people (a majority of who are former child soldiers) received training, bought seeds, tools and worked with YAI agriculture experts to plant and harvest the farm.
