Mohammed, co-chair of team Masillah, shows us how well the 600 cashew nut saplings planted by Hope Sakuma volunteers last month are doing. And it looks like they've settled in rather well! It must be that rich, fertile Sanda Magbolonto soil. Kindly given by COOPI, in just three years the crop from these trees will help boost local nutrition and improve livelihoods in Sanda Magbolonto Chiefdom.
Diversifying into drought-resistant crops like cashew helps these communities in rural Sierra Leone to adapt to the increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events caused by climate change, making these communities more resilient.
