Partnership for Change: Christian Aid in Sierra Leone
Christian Aid’s Sierra Leone programme started in 1988 with a focus on service delivery and humanitarian assistance.
Since the civil war ended in 2002, we have had a greater emphasis on building the capacity of local partners to challenge the systems and structures that perpetuate poverty and inequality.
Our vision is a Sierra Leone where poor and marginalised women and men have equal access to resources and services and thrive within a responsible state.
We also work on governance, health, including HIV, sustainable livelihoods and resolving conflicts.
We work with organisations at all levels across the country, especially in the southern, eastern and western areas where we have been working for more than two decades.
We have partners in very remote areas where few international organisations operate, due to the difficult terrain.
We provide grants, technical and strategic support, mentoring and accompaniment to partners based on their needs.
