Joseph Koroma, Sierra Leone

Joseph Koroma is a pastor in Sierra Leone who attended our initial agriculture trainings in the Lunsar area in March 2016. Affectionately known as “Pastor Sullay” to his church, he worried about their ability to care for themselves and their children. He was so excited by the possibilities offered by conservation agriculture, he immediately returned to his church and began teaching his congregants, who are mostly Ebola widows. He now uses the agriculture methods in the plots where he works with his congregation, as well as in his personal plots that provide food and household income for his family.

Recently, he planted a very nice plot of maize to the high standards he saw with Pastor Sullay’s work and his labor is being rewarded with excellent early germination rates and solid mulching.
