An online community aims to transform a war ravaged country.
Tribewanted, a site which promotes cross cultural community living, is aiming to build an eco-resort in Sierra Leone. British entrepreneur Ben Keene has teamed up with the government and local community to set up the project which will have ‘tribe’ members from the online community site of Tribewanted, working together with the local villagers to build a sustainable eco-community resort on the John Obey beach, near Sierra Leone’s capital, Freetown. Interested people can become tribe members by donating a minimum of £20 to the local non-profit community organizations working in partnership with Tribewanted, or by paying £295 for a week’s stay and get the opportunity of joining in with the development of the new village.
