AYPAD works on two main levels within our Agricultural Program: first, AYPAD engages with the community as a whole through sensitization meetings with local youths involved in farming, specially focusing in women. These workshops discuss the importance of caring for locally planted trees in order to decrease soil erosion, to provide protection from strong winds and rain and to create employment opportunities for people involved in the project, mainly young women with agricultural knowledge. Secondly, AYPAD farmers will plant fruit, rice, vegetables and other lucrative trees at port Loko District In Sierra Leone as a means of employment and income generating for younth involved in farming. The project will involve young people, mainly women, from six surrounding villages. The planting will be during the rainy season and generally occurs three times a week. During the tree planting, the chiefs of Dar es Salam village donated a 12acres land for the organization to fulfill the project.
