Where We Work

Sierra Leone

COOPI began working in Sierra Leone in 1967. after the civil war, it carried out projects of psycho-social assistance and reintegration for children subjected to armed groups, women victims of violence and mutilated soldiers. After that, COOPI focused its intervention on the relationship between the recognition of women's rights and development, with particular importance given to the access to land.

In 2015, after the outbreak of the Ebola epidemic that caused thousands of deaths and brought the country's economy to its knees, COOPI supported children orphaned by the epidemic. Also in the same year, COOPI launched two socio-economic development projects aimed at improving the living conditions of people in rural areas: while the first aims to strengthen the cultivation of cashew nuts and therefore to improve their processing, conservation and marketing techniques, the second aims to promote activities for the production of renewable energy to provide clean electricity in schools, hospitals, cashew processing centres.
