The Aurora Foundation recently received a grant from the Icelandic Ministry for Foreign Affairs for the Lettie Stuart Pottery development project in Sierra Leone. Work on the project is in progress and it is expected to be operational in 2021.
For over a decade the Aurora Foundation has been actively working in collaboration with various development projects in Sierra Leone. In spite of Sierra Leone's incredible beauty and environment rich with natural resources, it has one of the lowest per capita incomes globally. Situated on the Western coast of Africa, Sierra Leone is a place of charming close-knit communities where people with various religious beliefs live together in harmony.
The Aurora Foundation operates with the idea that through introducing Icelandic designers to the artisans and craftspeople of Sierra Leone, the different cultural realms are able to exchange ideas, work together and learn from one another to make a profound impact and improve people's lives.
Implementation of the project will be completed in 2021.
