For most children in rural Sierra Leone, farm work is seen as a means of punishment. The children only focus their attention on the labor that the discipline entails, forgetting about the knowledge, skills, and the income the grower gains to support their livelihood.

This project will create the awareness in the children that agriculture is a business that gives people the skills required to create income that makes them self-sufficient.
