Living in Sierra Leone
Sierra Leone is a West African country with an Atlantic Ocean coastline, located between Liberia to the south-east and Guinea to the north and east. The country’s capital, Freetown, is located by the sea on a small peninsula by the Tagrin Bay. After declaring independence from the United Kingdom in 1961, the country went through an extended period of political instability, characterised by attempted military coups, elimination of democratic opposition and violent civil war. This civil war has now ended, though as it ended a new crisis arose in the form of an Ebola outbreak in 2014 which directly affected ten thousand people. The country has a varied topography: the north is largely savannah; the eastern is mountainous; the south has large rainforests, and the west, coastal region involves both mangrove swamps and more attractive beach landscapes. Sierra Leone’s economy is fairly weak, as a result of the years of instability that has been experienced in the country. There are signs of recovery however, and its varied export market, including diamonds, aluminium, boats and cocoa beans, is beneficial in this regard. Youth unemployment remains particularly problematic however. Agriculture is the largest employer, with 66% of Sierra Leoneans working in the sector. An array of different ethnic groups is found in Sierra Leone, and they all originate from specific areas within the country’s territory. Islam is the main religion, being the faith of 3 of 4 Sierra Leoneans.
