Organisation

The coordination team of WWOOF Sierra Leone decided to start an experimental introduction period for “ WWOOFing opportunities in Sierra Leone”. Between the period 2006 – 2007, WWOOF Sierra Leone, a foundation for a regular WWOOFing organization was built, followed by a list of Sierra Leonean farmers involved in sustainable agriculture and interested in receiving international volunteers. On the way, WWOOF Sierra Leone hopes to meet enthusiastic farmers, development workers, etc., with practical knowledge and experience to join in the organization and work together on the future possibilities and towards an extension of WWOOF Sierra Leone.

WWOOF Sierra Leone also organizes instruction/orientation meetings for farmers, provide information about WWOOFing, WWOOF International and WWOOF Sierra Leone’s progress towards the future. WWOOF Sierra Leone will always provide the information for farmers or volunteers to join in the organization.
