The initial problem is that the majority of the Sierra Leone/African food systems and markets are not well tailored and organized for the benefit of all the stakeholders (producers, consumers, marketers, governments etc).WeCare development Foundation (W.D.F) is dedicated to building strong, sustainable, local and regional food systems that ensure access to affordable, nutritious, and culturally appropriate food for people at all times.
This initiative is purely based in the Sierra Leonean context, at least for a start owing to the tremendous devastation the country suffered from the more than a decade of civil war. WeCare Development Foundation seeks to develop self-reliance in communities in which they will in position to earn a better living.
This involves creating a system of growing, processing, making available and selling food that is locally produced. The building of these capacities will be based on the principles of justice, democracy, and sustainability with the grass-root people, otherwise known as the underprivileged.
Development issues have been far too long paid a lot of attention on production, with less attention paid to processing and marketing that are part and parcel of the entire chain of production. The emphasis is on vertical integration in the production chain and to establish ideal platforms for the formation of producers, processing and marketing co-operatives.
The following are the areas in which the Department offers expertise:
