COME, I’LL SHOW YOU THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN

SIERRA LEONE

Sierra Leone (officially the Republic of Sierra Leone) borders Guinea in the north and Liberia in the southeast. Freetown is the country’s capital and economic centre. English is the official language of this former British colony, but most people speak Krio.
>/br>
Over a thousand schools were destroyed during the civil war that lasted from 1991 to 2002. Following the Ebola epidemic (2014-2016), the country is now working to rebuild state and social infrastructure. Both Sierra Leone’s constitution and the 2004 Education Act mandate nine years of compulsory basic education, but full compliance is not possible due to a lack of schools and teachers. The literacy rate of the adult population in 2015 was 48.1% (women: 37.7%, men: 58.7%).
>/br>
Sierra Leone has a great variety of media. After a long debate, 2013 saw the passing of a freedom of information law. Sierra Leone ranked 85th out of 180 countries on the 2020 World Press Freedom Index, published by Reporters without Borders.
