About Sierra Leone

  • Lush countryside
  • Amazing beaches
  • Village life

Sierra Leone is a beautiful country, transformed since its brutal civil war. Peaceful, welcoming, and blessed with incredible natural resources.

For us, working to raise money for Street Child is a chance to do something that has immediate impact on individual lives in the country.

During our trip in 2012 we were able to travel to the remote region of Tambakha near the border with Guinea. It was the scenery and people of this Chiefdom that captured our hearts and inspired us to continue our fund-raising efforts on our return.

Below is a beautiful film made in Tambakha:

Why Sierra Leone needs our help

There are few countries whose future depends on the fate of its children more than Sierra Leone. According to the latest UN figures, half of the population are under 18.

Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries in the world: The UN Human Development Index (HDI) provides a composite measure of three dimensions of human development: living a long and healthy life, education and having a decent standard of living. In 2008 the HDI again ranked Sierra Leone last (out of 179 countries).
