During Sierra Leone’s long civil war, diamond mining was fuel for the violence and a lure to rural youth who turned their backs on rural agriculture. But since the war ended in 2002, young people have been encouraged to play a pivotal role in moving the country forward, especially when it comes to food production. They are taking a renewed interest in farming and for the first time in years see a future in the very thing that for so long had been neglected.
