Today, the U.S. Mission in Sierra Leone released the first annual edition of the Report to the Salone People, which tells the story of the United States’ enduring partnership with the Sierra Leonean people, focusing on the impact of our work to promote economic growth, improve health and foster democratic values.
“In the spirit of transparency and openness, this magazine provides an insight into the diverse contributions made by the United States Government to the people and government of Sierra Leone. Our shared journey towards development is a testament to the enduring friendship between our nations,” U.S. Ambassador Bryan Hunt said. In summary, the United States is here for good health, here for economic growth, and here for democracy and governance in Sierra Leone. Above all, the United States is here for the people.
The report features some of the Sierra Leoneans whose lives have benefited from U.S.-funded programs in Sierra Leone, from ensuring community health workers are able to tackle malaria, to building media literacy skills through cultural exchange programs, and grass-roots support to communities through special self help grants.
