Sustainable Farming in Liberia

Thanks to your support, our CAFOD staff and partners and partners in Liberia work closely with women and girls in Monrovia, helping them learn good agricultural practices and farming skills, as well as providing essential tools and seeds. This empowers them to grow their own food and build a sustainable livelihood. This initiative not only develops their knowledge on farming but also ensures they have consistent access to nutritious food.

My children and grandchildren depend on me and my agriculture. All my children and grandchildren are happy. The help that agriculture gives, and the happiness, it’s in my body! […] Right now, the cost of living is too high. I don’t have the money to buy the right seeds to plant. I want to work hard but the money is not here to buy more seeds. My farm is all ready to grow but I can’t afford to buy seeds.

Although SHED’s support to communities like Fatu’s has been incredibly well received and helpful, there are now issues with the cost of seeds being too high for them to plant much, leaving them with minimal crop yield.

Your continued support is crucial in creating lasting change and nurturing hope and prosperity in these resilient communities. Thank you for helping people as they work to support their families.
