FCA work in Sierra Leone ended in the beginning of 2018. Our work focused particularly on operating in the least developed areas. We implemented livelihood and vocational training programmes for several years.
Towards sustainable livelihood
The aim of the community development programme was to improve food security, increase adult literacy and create opportunities for new sources of livelihood. In addition, all of our efforts emphasised gender equality and conflict prevention.
FCA also organised education in villages, which encouraged people to take the initiative and shoulder the responsibility for their own development and the development of their communities.
Education of young people
FCA supported the vocational training of young people in Maken and Kabala, and the Youth Training Centres of Zimmi and Bon. The training centres are intended for the poorest of students, who are largely illiterate. The goal was to provide them with the skills and abilities they need to earn their own livelihood.
