Ivorian Refugees Venture Into Lowland Farming

On April 21, 2021, the LDS/RRF team departed Phebe to Saclepea to share the team work plan with the LRRRC Regional Coordinator for Nimba, Bong and Lofa Counties. In Saclepea, the both team shared common ideas and experiences regarding the refugees’ situation in Nimba County. The team later departed for Buutuo, Buu-yao District, Nimba County to make follow up on the nine agricultural groups established  in the Refugees host communities. In Buutuo, the team visited the nine refugees farms to authenticate the existence of the farm or garden projects. The groups were observed to be well organized and willing to work. The totals of two hundred seventy (270) members comprised the nine groups of refugees’ farmers with the average of thirty members per group. It was also established that five of the groups have started the planting process. Among the five groups, two groups are from Buehlay; while three farming groups are from Buutuo. According to heads of various groups, they are working as a team and want to be grateful to God and LDS for support to their livelihood activities.
