Project Description

An absence of conflict doesn’t guarantee human security. In spite of its mineral wealth, Sierra Leone ranks last on the UN Human Development Index.  Join One Sky staff for a hands-on experience of our land reclamation, sustainable agriculture and advocacy work in this former conflict zone.

Part reality tour, part development opportunity, Land, Food Diamonds participants will travel to mining and reclamation sites and engage with local groups fighting to change policy and promote sustainable rural livelihoods. Guided evening discussions will provide an opportunity for participants to reflect on the day’s activities and integrate these experiences into their understanding of themselves, their work, and the world.

For more information, please refer to the documents below. We look forward to hearing from you.
