  • Sustainable agricultural livelihood and income enhancement for 2,500 women farmers in northern Sierra Leone through skills training and gaining access to markets This project aims to increase the income of 2,500 rural women farmers in 50 villages and increase their ability to use this income to reduce household poverty (benefitting 17,500 dependents) in Bombali District, Sierra Leone. This will be achieved through the establishment of 50 women’s farming cooperatives that are trained in improved agricultural techniques and business skills. Alongside this, gender awareness training and advocacy activities will be delivered in cooperative communities and Village Monitoring Committees will be established to give women increased power to decide on the use of extra income. Total Project Budget: £249,739
