About Sierra Leone


Sierra Leone History

Following the American Revolution, a colony was established in 1787 and Sierra Leone became a destination for resettling black loyalists who had originally been resettled in Nova Scotia. After the abolition of the slave trade in 1807, British crews delivered thousands of Africans liberated from illegal slave ships to Sierra Leone, particularly Freetown. The colony gradually expanded inland during the course of the 19th century; independence was attained in 1961.

Sierra Leone Civil War

Beginning in 1991 was the start of the Sierra Leone civil war. Former army corporal Foday Sankoh and his Revolutionary United Front (RUF) begin a campaign against President Momoh, capturing towns on the border with Liberia. In 1992, President Joseph Momoh ousted in a military coup led by Capt Valentine Strasser, apparently frustrated by the failure to deal with rebels. Under international pressure, Capt Strasser announces plans for the first multi-party elections since 1967. In January 1996, Valentine Strasser ousted in a military coup led by his defense minister, Brig Julius Maada Bio. In October 1997 the UN Security Council imposes sanctions on Sierra Leone, barring the supply of arms and petroleum products. Marth 1998, Kabbah makes a triumphant return to Freetown amid scenes of public rejoicing. 1999 January - Rebels backing Revolutionary United Front leader Foday Sankoh seize parts of Freetown from Ecomog. After weeks of bitter fighting, they are driven out, leaving behind 5,000 dead and a devastated Sierra Leone.

Sierra Leone People

Sierra Leone population clusters are found in the lower elevations of the south and west; the northern third of the country is less populated. Sierra Leone’s large youth makes up about 60 percent of the population is under the age of 25 – continues to struggle with high levels of unemployment, which was one of the major causes of the country’s 1991-2002 civil war and remains a threat to stability today. It's estimated 60 percent youth unemployment rate is attributed to high levels of illiteracy and unskilled labor, a lack of private sector jobs, and low pay.
