Living Seeds Training & Business Schools is a not-for-profit social enterprise. Our vision is to empower the 70% of young people in Sierra Leone who are unemployed to rise up out of poverty and come into all they were meant to be – through providing a combination of high-quality vocational training and significant employment opportunities within our own manufacturing activities. These activities not only provide employment but also fund the ongoing operating costs of the training school.
At the same time, in a nation that came last in Transparency International’s global Corruption Index, and where many of the norms of social behaviour have been lost, we want to demonstrate the values of honesty and integrity in the marketplace.
At the centre of all this is our Christian faith and the motivation behind all that we do. We seek to work out the deep compassion of Christ for the poor, the needy and the dispossessed in the life and activities of our school and business enterprise.
