As a condition of the Lome Peace Accord that ended 11 years of war in 1999, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission was set up 2002-2004. Most people didn't know. Even insiders had the impression it was a project of Geneva and the UN, a job-creator for wealthy bureaucrats. Did real people feel vindicated? Was follow-up action taken? I'll share my perspective not as an expert, but eyes-on-the-ground about how real people are recovering and finding peace.
I'm an energetic and enthusiastic public health advocate, working for the Ministry of Health and Sanitation in Bo District. Previously, I worked for Medicos Del Mundo as a health program learning officer in Moyamba, and for Family Health International in Freetown, Sierra Leone. I am a native speaker of Krio and Mende, the principal languages of Sierra Leone, as well as English. My passion is public health, clinical research, data management and analysis.
Through conversation, we discover the wider world. I will help you learn Krio or Mende, and you will share a piece of your world with me.
