I am Abu Bakarr Fofanah and I joined BRAC in Sierra Leone seven years ago in the Agriculture, Food Security, Poultry and Livestock programme. BRAC’s interventions and approaches are impressive in my country. They allow community-based farmers to increase their productivity, income and their general standard of living. I have been part of many poultry and livestock projects since joining BRAC as an area livestock officer. All the projects are geared towards supporting farmers, especially women, in remote areas, to improve their lives. BRAC’s projects have changed the perception of farmers about their work and made them proud of what they do, and this change is spreading across other parts of the country.
BRAC has rewarded me by promoting me to the level of Regional Livestock Coordinator Northern, and also by awarding me with the prestigious BRAC Values Award for 2016. I have been motivated to work harder with BRAC because of the honour and prestige bestowed upon me. I now manage five branches under my region. For as long as I have the right platform to work on, I will continue to work with BRAC.
I have confidence in BRAC values and I am confident enough to say that I am BRAC.
