"We partner with rural communities, working with them to establish sustainable agriculture practices and access other livelihoods. Our first project is Lungi Village, Sierra Leone"
The small farming village of Lungi, near Bo in Sierra Leone was devastated by the Ebola Crisis. After facing multiple quarantines to contain the outbreak, villagers were unable to reach their farmland, which quickly became overgrown destroying their livelihoods. The people of Lungi became dependent on food aid as they were unable to farm their land.
Catch the Dream has been working in partnership with the villagers since May 2017 to re-establish their farming livelihoods. With the help of seeds, tools and support the villagers have successfully harvested their first crop for three years. They have grown maize, rice, cassava, vegetables and more, and are now re-introducing livestock and preparing for future harvests.
