The Statement of the Problem: Sierra Leone is the 5th hungriest country in Africa and faces food insecurity at an alarming rate.
A large percentage of the foods not sold in the local markets contribute to $ million in the post-harvest loss.
The lack of value-added food production costs the country $ million in lost revenue and a negative trade balance. At Exodus Trust, we collaborate with our strategic partners to help solve the problem of food insecurity, international trade, and export.

Our Strategic Advantage
ET/SOW’s 25-acre farm & Production facility is one of the largest moringa and neem cultivation sites.
It is strategically making S.O.W. farm an established production facility for the production of Moringa and Neem.
As a result, S.A.C.E.D. will be one of the only agri-business centers uniquely situated to launch agribusiness projects with vested partners from the international community.
The S.O.W. farm site will house the S.A.C.E.D. business center and serve as a secure Hub for international partners to participate in value-addition and sustainable business and community development.
The three agribusinesses. S.A.C.E.D. Center for business development, E.T./SOW Organic Farm, and S.O.W. processing facility positioned on Exodus Trust farm site set ET/SOW Business Complex for International Trade and Commerce.
SOW 100% Moringa Leaf Tea is S.A.C.E.D.’s first food commodity for international import and distribution.
This project will build the capacity of local stakeholders to address ET/SOW production objectives to scale up and meet the needs of global importers of mega-foods such as moringa.
