eventually the hope is that once they become self-sustaning then they would be able to sell at the market in Monrovia, I think long term it may work to being across borders, but my understand is that it is VERY expensive to do that.  I'll know more in November.

why not contact FT federation or international FT organisations?
to sale in monrovia is cool and a start but it means they are very limited and dependent .

Indeed agriculture pays but where is the land to cultivate? Most of the lands are in the remote areas. That is why many people don't farm.

What is FT?

the situation in Liberia is a grave one, there are MANY orphanages that the government wants to just go away.  They don't even meet basic standards to qualify to receive any help.  we will be there to help those orphanages, bring them up to the basic standards and then beyond so they are self-sufficient.  The wars didn't happen overnight and its not going to be an easy overnight solution.  Many who left Liberia when the war began and started a new life here in the US are receiving personal telephone calls from the President of Liberia requesting they come back.  One man who is going with us is such a person.  He has been appointed by a group of 15 men who live here in Washington to go and see the country and bring back to the group what he sees as the needs of his people. 

For self-sustaning farming it is possible to do what is called container gardening which is becoming very popular here in the major US cities.  Another is rooftop gardening - although that won't work there in Liberia because one needs a flat roof and because of the rainy season flat roofs don't work.

The people sure need it.
