Welbodi gari is a business in Sierra Leone that produces and sells “Welbodi Gari” made from locally processed cassava (gari) with added ingredients which increases flavour and nutritional value. This business takes the local gari product in Sierra Leone, which on its own is rich in only one nutrient (Carbohydrate) and makes it into a well packaged product that adds more nutrients and is also edible on the fly.
The Welbodi gari idea comes from Planting Promise – an N.G.O which operates two primary schools in Sierra Leone. The sales from the Welbodi gari business covers the operation of the schools.
