Sierra Leone

Friends of the Earth Sierra Leone

FoE Sierra Leone is a grassroot environmental organization founded in 1989, the same year they joined FoEI. The organization has 25 local groups that promote environmental awareness, partly through their campaigns on sustainable societies. FoE Sierra Leone also seeks to advance women's and girls' roles in the sustainable management of resources. One example is the group's Intermediate Technology Centre ECO-CENTER, where villagers are trained in tailoring, typing, blacksmithing and toy making. FoE Sierra Leone publishes a newsletter called COTTON TREE NEWS.

FoE SL also works with local farmers in order to promote the use of Compost/ farm yard manure in the production of organic food.
