Map of Sierra Leone


March 1, 2018

In November 2017, the Office of Food for Peace (FFP) convened implementing partners (IPs), representatives from the Government of Sierra Leone (GoSL), and other stakeholders for a two-day learning event in Freetown, Sierra Leone. The event was focused on surfacing learning from the cash transfer programming (CTP) initiated as part of the response to the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) crisis in West Africa, and took place as IPs prepared to close out programming in December 2017. The objectives of the event were: (1) to identify learning that FFP and IPs can bring forward from their experience in Sierra Leone to inform future cash transfer programming in West Africa and beyond; and (2) to identify challenges and innovations from the experience of implementing cash transfer programs to support recovery from the EVD crisis in Sierra Leone.
