Impact assessment for Sweet Salone project

21.05.21

Aurora just launched an overview of our Sweet Salone project’s impact over the past couple of years. The Sweet Salone project, connecting international designers and Sierra Leonean artisans, has been growing each year since the start back in 2017. Since 2019 we have started to assess the impact the project is having on our collaborators in Sierra Leone by collecting different data about production and the economic situation of our collaborators. The Impact Assessment thus gives you an overview of the situation and shows the growth of production each year as well as some testimonials for the artisans that are involved.
