Sierra Leone U.S Connection

 

Approximately 60 percent of Sierra Leoneans live below the national poverty line. Remaining among the world’s poorest nations, ranking 180 out of 187 countries in the Human Development Index, more than 60 percent of Sierra Leoneans live on less than $1.25 a day.

 

Sierra Leone remains heavily dependent on foreign aid. Although positive economic growth has steadily occurred over the past decade since the end of the civil war, Sierra Leone continues to rely on foreign aid. About 50 percent of public investment programs are financed by external resources.

Education in Sierra Leone has been a challenge. The devastating Sierra Leone civil war that lasted from 1991 to 2000 took the nation’s education system as an early casualty, wiping out 1,270 Primary schools and forcing 67% of all school aged children out of school. Through donations SLUSC have been able to provide school materials and teachers to help educate the youth.
