The WARC Foundation is a Sierra Leonean non-profit organization that aims to improve the livelihoods of disadvantaged families by investing in the rural communities that
WARC Production operates in.
The WARC Foundation focuses on social
development and relief projects tied together
with longer-term economic development to
improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers in isolated and rural areas.
The Foundation is strongly integrated into the community of Tormabum, where WARC Production carries out its main farm operations. The community decides what’s important, and the WARC Foundation helps make it happen.
WARC Foundation’s flagship program, The Little Orange House (LOH) is an Early Childhood Development centre located in the village of Tormabum which seeks to engage children in their first five years, empowering them to fulfill their developmental potential and become architects of their own life.
The LOH was inaugurated on May 2016, and now has an enrollment of over 100 children from the ages of 2 to 5. The initiative has brought great outcomes to the children and their caregivers.
The WARC Foundation revitalised an old building and converted it into the LOH, where over 100 children attend every day
Improving the nutritional status of children from 2 to 5 and contributing to their wellness, healthy growth, and development. We fight malnutrition with treatment and prevention, by attacking the problem at its root causes.
We push the child to reach his or her physical and mental potential with continued and regular stimulation, play, and other proven pedagogical strategies.
Programs for parents are conducted to better equip them to support the healthy development of their child, such as training gardening skills and encouraging women-owned small businesses.
We give back to the community in more ways than one. From the Little Orange House, to construction of a permanent local market, to rebuilding a burned down village, WARC Foundation actively seeks opportunities to improve the everyday lives of people living in the communities where we work, both in and out of the farm.
In 2016, some children in the nearby village of Waah were playing with fire when it accidentally got out of hand and burned the entire village down. Everything was gone, including rice stores that were meant to last through the rainy season.
WARC Foundation stepped in and paid for new building materials, rebuilding Waah from the ground up to better than it was before. The new zinc roofs are a big improvement over the straw used before, and ensures that another incident like this doesn't happen again.
