Furniture making in West Africa11/16
My charity, Village Hope, is looking for an experienced furniture maker to advise us on starting a wood working shop in a remote part of Sierra Leone, West Africa.
The work will include helping us identify products we can reasonably produce and selecting the needed tools, The individual, or perhaps a different person, will then come to SL for 6-8 weeks to train an existing group of local carpenters so that they can continue production on their own (but under our supervision). All expenses plus a small honorarium will be paid for the person traveling.
We have lots of information about the nascent business and the situation here (I have worked in SL for 9 years).
I'm posting this note in several places so I would appreciate hearing back via email.
You can also look at our website www.villagehopeinc.org though it is a bit out of date.
