The Impact Assessment for the Sweet Salone project in 2021 is out!

10.02.22

We are excited to present the impact assessment of Sweet Salone for the year 2023. This year has witnessed significant strides in our mission to empower local artisans and foster sustainable practices in Sierra Leone. 

Sweet Salone experienced two primary areas of growth in 2023: growth in the production of our core catalogue of goods, especially by Lettie Stuart Pottery center and Brama Town, as well as recommencing work on the production of pillows and blankets that incorporates three distinct sets of artisans along the production line.  

Production in the two largest artisan groups expanded substantially in 2023. Notably, the Lettie Stuart Pottery exhibited an impressive 50% increase in total production compared to 2022. Brama Town, too, witnessed an astounding 286% surge in production. This growth in production reflects the growing demand for the Sweet Salone products, and therefore, the growing impact on the lives and livelihoods of our artisans and their families. 

In 2023, the number of artisans working with Sweet Salone expanded by 22%, showcasing the growing influence of our artisan community. Notably we resumed work on Hugdetta pillows and throws, after few years of pausing these items. The cotton pillows and throws incorporate the natural dying of cotton by a team of skilled traditional dye artisans, country cloth weaving by Ibrahim Kallon, and stitching into the final form by tailor Foday Thoronka.

Thank you for being a vital part of our journey towards sustainable empowerment. Your support continues to inspire us to reach new heights and make a lasting impact in Sierra Leone.
