Education and Cultural Affairs Community Exchange programs for Young Talented Sierra Leoneans

Executive Summery

The Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961, Public Law 87-256, as amended, also known as the Fulbright-Hays Act enable the Government of the United States to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of Sierra Leone; to strengthen the ties between the two countries by demonstrating the educational interest, cultural interests, economic developments, and achievements of the people of the United States and Sierra Leone and thus, assist in the development of friendly, sympathetic and peaceful relationships between the people of United States and Sierra Leoneans.

In an increasingly connected world, economic development, environmental degradation, political instabilities, and social challenges that confront the two countries happens to better link them together if managed properly.

Innovative approaches to building healthy and flexible communities have universal function when supported by collaborative and ethical leaders with the right attitude of those who are trained, educated, endow with the right experience and ready to bring change and solutions to local and international communities.

Even though making progress on difficult challenges starts locally, it requires international engagement Addressing these challenges requires leadership training at the highest levels using advance technology across national, professional, and demographic boundaries to shape the multi-dimensional solutions needed in an increasingly convoluted world.

Salvation Academy in collaboration with supporters, donors and the Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) can confront the above challenges as global citizens, ready and willing to share resources and talents across local and international borders.

Why Sierra Leone the Best Choice for the 2020 ECA Program: -

For young talented Sierra Leoneans: The Census becomes a liability, the obvious clearly predictable. In March 1991 through 2002, fear rips Sierra Leoneans apart; the civil war in Sierra Leone destroyed the inner qualities of young talented Sierra Leoneans at the time, including myself.

Fear makes young talented Sierra Leoneans lose their abilities to make smart decisions. I personally will forever remain grateful to the people of United States who did not only welcome me to America, while I was so fearful and confused about my future and the future of my family, America gave me the opportunity to make a brilliant decision that restored my life, my future and the lives and future of my immediate families. The opportunity accorded me extended to thousands of fellow Sierra Leoneans in both United states and Sierra Leone for the past 14 years.

My team and I can do more with the support of donors and supporters like you.

Talented young Sierra Leoneans can accomplish the goals of Community Solutions Programs because of the financial support of our donors and supporters.

Fear is a terrible way of managing the mindsets of people. We need to eradicate fear now and replace it with education, training and employment opportunities

Fear led a of lot young talented Sierra Leoneans to become criminals and rebels to redirect the destinies of others.

Census in Sierra Leone is unlike others; the obvious so glaring that the future is inevitably bleak.

We can eradicate fear from the mindsets of these young talents through education, training and employment opportunities using US best practices in the workplace.
