COME, I’LL SHOW YOU

ILLEGAL TRADITIONS

Abu, the privileged son of the local chief, returns to his home village after his studies to work for  an international corporation that is the main employer there. His childhood best friend, Karimu, had no chance of a good education and therefore no job.
&nbsp
Abu tries everything to get the company to hire Karimu and the village youth. But it’s not that easy, because without training there are no jobs, but without jobs there is no money for training either. Abu faces a dilemma. Against all odds, he begins to devise an elaborate plan to fulfil his promise that he will provide work.

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.
