Sierra Leone Civil War

Director of Jeneba Project, Joseph Kaifala has told Reporters that the Memory Project will give Sierra Leoneans the opportunity to give oral history about the brutal civil war that happened in Sierra Leone.  The project will serve as “a platform for justice”, granting an avenue to the voices and experiences of children and youths who were most affected by the war and continue to be most vulnerable in society.  He added that this project is an oral history project dedicated to recording testimonies from former child soldiers, amputees, rape victims, all those who lived through the war, to ensure that the history of the civil war is preserved in order to confront the horrors of our past and to help prevent repetition of similar atrocities.  For full story click here.
