Sierra Leone: Disability Experience Sharing

Disability issues in Sierra Leone still faces a lot of challenges in all sectors of the society. This makes it difficult for PWDs to enhance self- aggrandizement both as individual and in groups. Even with setting up of a Commission on disabilities they still lack basic to enjoy their rights equally with others. This project aims to increase the access of PWDs to information and create a forum to discuss their issues with duty bearers.

Sierra Leone: Kombra Project

This is a rural “Women's Economic Development Enterprise that helps women to utilize their skills and earn wages to improve their economic status. The women are producing traditional tie-died textiles into colorful pressed cotton tablecloths and napkins, bedspreads etc. to market locally and internationally online through social media and networking. The profits generated are put towards establishing scholarships for rural girls’ education.
