Hello Ms Hargous
Last week I returned from the visit to Yoni farm. I wanted to let you know the reason we had a great trip was in large part down to Kristian. Kristian was at all times attentive and his proficient Sierra Leone driving skills meant we could relax while bouncing around. Kristian clearly has a huge enthusiasm for Sierra Leone which he wanted to share when ever possible. The visit to Yoni school and Yoni village and others were all memorable.
As he said, it is an experience not a holiday. One that I would be happy to both recommend and repeat.
I accepted that Sierra Leone would be a brush with the unknown and I set out with many concerns for my welfare. It is obviously a country with vast potential inhabited by good natured people who love their country and welcome visitors with hospitality, if some disregard for customer service as we know it.
There are huge infrastructure challenges and it is sad to see vestiges of something better but destroyed by the internal strife of the 1990s. It is working out slowly. There is hope. The African Land project is happening and clearly benefiting the local community.
It will take time and determination to realise its full potential. The people I met on the farm including the local native people seem fully committed to making that happen. Have the jabs and go to look.
“I have just seen for myself all the investments that have been made, and am hoping to get a good return… The returns are a lot better than traditional investments… It has been a very adventurous trip.”
Manmohan Sihra – commenting on his investment in African Land and his trip to view the farm
“I liked the idea of [the investment] particularly if it was going to help other people in the villages… I like Robert McKendrick a lot, and feel he’ll pull the deal to go there… It’s made it more interesting in coming out here, so we haven’t just put money in ¬ I suppose you feel more part of it.”
Peter Ancketill – commenting on his investment in African Land and his trip to view the farm
“Through [Capital Alternatives] abundant knowledge and expertise they have helped and guided me to choose the appropriate investment vehicle to meet my needs… I have been able to purchase 6 acres of land in Agri Capital project in Sierra Leone. The focus is on getting you educated and developing your emotional intelligence to become a smart investor.”. This is a life-time opportunity not to miss.”
“I found the whole trip most enlightening and very well organised…The labourers appear to be a happy and contented bunch… The children at Yoni School were a lovely surprise, a great experience and very humbling.”
