A week of harvesting Hope Sakuma's upland rice starts and ends in traditional h songs, each telling a (slightly rude) story entreating the rice to yield it's bounty to the skilled hands of our farmers.

Teams from Manays, Mabokaneh, Makeleskos and Sendugu FC rotate in to help with the harvest each with their own version sung in the Chiefdom's language, Temne. Each of these teams has helped us clear land, make bunds and paddies, plant and ow harvest learning new skills over the growing cycle and providing paid work during rainy season when families are at their most food insecure.

And by supporting village farmers we've been able to manage our 100 acre sustainable farms diverse value chains with a small gender-balanced team of five women and five men while developing feeder-farm arrangements with villages.

With more upland rice and Azolla-powered paddy rice to follow the team hope to be harvesting through the fall and into New Year, ensuring our interim care and fostering programmes benefit from nutritious produce!


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