Some links of interest

Sorry for the relatively few blog posts lately. I’m in Makeni for a week and have been having some problems with the internet connection here. I’m in Makeni for Krio language training. I’m staying with Heidi (another cdpeace volunteer who lives in Makeni) and I’m working out of the UN office (they have an office available to NGOs). The internet connection here hasn’t been that reliable unfortunately, but I am enjoying the air conditioning!

More posts coming soon! In the meantime, here are a few links that might be of interest.

An article written by the staff of Newport Sports Management – a Canadian business that donated the funds to rebuild the Mathombo school here in Sierra Leone.

Article about state of tourism in Sierra Leone:

An article on the current health situation in Sierra Leone:

More information about Amnesty International’s new campaign in Sierra Leone to reduce maternal morality (I attended the campaign launch event in Makeni – more about that to come):
