Sierra Leone Foundation for New Democracy (SLFND)
Sierra Leone Foundation for New Democracy works in partnership with communities to build the foundation for citizens of all ages to deliberate and enact new, non-adversarial alternatives that nurture democratic relationships and decision making among and across individuals, families, institutions, and the environment.
Connecting people to the earth to heal and grow the future
The Sierra Leone Foundation for New Democracy is actively establishing the country’s first rural early childhood education program on its first rural permaculture farm. SLFND's Dovalema Early Childhood Center and Ta-Valema Permaculture Farm & Learning Lab will serve together as a laboratory for children (age two to five), adults, and elders to cultivate non-adversarial ways of interacting with each other, with institutions, and with the environment.
