Between farm work the Hope Sakuma team squeeze in construction of a fine sturdy pen from scratch in just three days and just in time for some new livestock arriving from Freetown.

Day One: Carefully siting the pen in a shady spot on an east-west axis and well downwind of our wattle and daub hut; work begins with Issa, our resident carpenter making a grand job of the basic structure carefully measuring to meet FAO size and waste management specifications.

Day Two: Collecting more bamboo from Auny Tafatu, work continues under the expert eye of project coordinator Amabest fashioning the walls for the new pen from resilient bamboo.

Day Three: The final day finds palm thatch secured and a structure to be proud of; sturdy enough to support the weight of two strong men!

Issa finishes off with a very tidy indeed seven bar gate! Just the thing for our herders to check on animal welfare and collect their sounder to plough untruned fields.


Please and share our sustainable farming journey empowering rural women to improve nutrition, livelihoods and climate change adaptation in Sierra Leone.
