Sierra Leone Foundation for New Democracy (SLFND), mission is to work in partnership at the village level to nurture democratic relationships, build local resilient institutions and incorporate ecologically sustainable principles into the work,

Description

My name is Hindolo Pokawa; I founded a small, grassroots 501(c) 3 non-profit organization in Minnesota called Sierra Leone Foundation for New Democracy (SLFND), to engage others in the US and in Africa in establishing a sustainable-based preschool in rural farming communities in Sierra Leone. The preschool-building projects, both through hands-on construction work in Sierra Leone and through fundraising have achieved greater impact for the long-term sustainability for about 250 children in our first village in Sierra Leone. (www.slfnd.org). especially with gardening/farming to replace the failing slash and burn tradition thereby increasing food production to feed children twice daily- four days a week, and to provide critical literacy, that would support cognitive skills, fine motor skills, social skills and developmental skills for children ages 2-5.
