WHAT WE DO IN SIERRA LEONE
We work on strengthening the health system with innovative approaches to a sustainable reduction in teenage pregnancy. Our approach includes working with boys and men.
We further develop the private sector by supporting small and large businesses with microfinance and investments. We also increase resilience to disasters and risks in the face of climate change, environmental degradation and conflict.
