The World Food Programme (WFP) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) have initiated a transformative mission to empower nearly 3,000 families living in seven districts within Sierra Leone.

This ambitious endeavor, rooted in the goal of improving access and control over essential resources, aims to break down social and financial barriers through the establishment of Savings Associations.

At its heart, this program revolves around the creation of Village Savings and Loans Associations, with the intent of bolstering communities and driving positive, sustainable change.

Supported by generous funding from USAID, WFP is reaching out to families that have frequently encountered formidable challenges on their path to self-reliance. By nurturing a sense of collective strength and fostering unity within these communities, the project aspires to set in motion a wave of progress.

As the project unfolds across the seven districts in Sierra Leone, it promises to serve as a symbol of hope for thousands of families, equipping them with the means and resources to overcome adversity and pave the way for a more secure and prosperous future.
