Sierra Leone

BBC Media Action in Sierra Leone is helping to improve access to vital services (Wi Di Pipul) and youth engagement (Mi Stori) through radio debate and social media. We've also helped improve government transparency and accountability in Sierra Leone through talk-show Tok Bot Salone.

During the Ebola crisis we worked with media and NGO partners to provide life-saving information and engaging radio drama as well as providing training for journalists and public service announcements. 

Our educational programmes enabled cocoa farmers to gain new skills at a time when they were recovering from the long-term economic effects of the civil war. 

We also helped raise public awareness, understanding and debate about the processes of international justice by supporting Sierra Leonean and Liberian journalists to report from the trial of former Liberian President Charles Taylor in The Hague.
