Video training for lobbying in Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone is still recovering from a long, bitter and vicious civil war which devastated communities and the lives of its citizens.

The civil war had a devastating impact on Sierra Leone - more than two million people were affected, many of whom are still refugees in neighbouring countries.

Sierra Leone is one of the lowest-ranking countries in the world for life expectancy, access to education and standard of living. Almost three-quarters of people live below the poverty line.
