YALIGoesGreen for Agribusiness

Sierra Leone

YALIGoesGreen for Agribusiness: Sierra Leone is dedicated to showcasing the benefits of producing and consuming local agriculture and highlighting how the agricultural sector presents opportunities to harness the potential of Sierra Leonean youth to contribute to food security in the future.  The resources on this page share many facets of agriculture — how technology and communications are transforming the agricultural sector,  how you can help advance the agricultural economy, and how you can support agriculture locally.

Read the blogs to learn more about agripreneurship and how the U.S. Embassy in Freetown is supporting youth across Sierra Leone in responding to local agricultural challenges.  Take the YALI Network Online Course, Agripreneurship – A Path to the Future to learn more about agripreneurship and why agriculture is vital to shaping the future of the African continent.  After you finish the course, complete the quiz to earn a certificate.

Finally, share what you’ve learned with others by organizing a #YALILearns session and promoting the shareable graphics on your social media pages!
