On December 17-20, 2009, the Kailahun District community of Bunumbu and District Executive will host an agricultural show, commonly known as “Cocoa Show”. This event was held annually around the country before the war, however, the conflict created an immense setback. The Bunumbu community realized reviving the agricultural show is important to their tradition and enhancing food security, so they approached the program with the initiative. The program is walking alongside the community to promote their initiative. Community members and farmers are expected to exhibit their harvest and display new agricultural innovations.
On November 25, 2009 the community held a press conference in Freetown and invited the nation. During the holiday season most people return to their villages, so hopefully their invitation will yield a positive turnout. We at Fambul Tok are anticipating the event and cant wait for the 17th. I’ll update you after the show…
PS. Happy Holidays from Catalyst for Peace and Fambul Tok Sierra Leone!!!
Really! Yes, the success of Fambul Tok Sierra Leone has generated a substantial amount of buzz throughout Africa, and beyond. Given the interest and potential, the Fambul Tok leadership decided to transition Fambul Tok, which was a program of CFP and FOC, to an international NGO, Fambul Tok International (FTI). WOW!! FTI will have its global program headquarters in Salone and corporate headquarters in the US, and both John and Libby will lead the way forward.
Currently, the program is transitioning to FTI and will fully function under the new identity as of January 1st, 2010. What will happen to Fambul Tok Sierra Leone? Nothing, it will serve as the learning lab for those from other countries. Also, since Fambul Tok Sierra Leone is in the process of facilitating reconciliation in all 14 districts in the country, “Na small small.” We plan to add 3 new districts in 2010, bringing our total to 6 districts. Where is FTI going next? No country has been identified yet, but FTI’s focus is on post-conflict countries. Maybe Liberia!?
