SIERRA LEONE - THE COUNTRY

The Republic of Sierra Leone is a country in West Africa bordered by Guinea, Liberia and the Atlantic Ocean. It has a tropical climate, with a diverse environment ranging from savanna to rainforests. The country has a total area of 71,740km2 and a population of 7.65 million. The country's capital and largest city is Freetown, where Aberdeen Women’s Centre is located.

POLITICS

Sierra Leone became independent from the UK on 27 April 1961, led by Sir Milton Margai, who became the country's first prime minister. The current president of Sierra Leone is Julius Maada Bio.

RELIGION

Sierra Leone is a Muslim-majority country, with the overall Muslim population at 78%, though there is an influential Christian minority at 21%. Sierra Leone is regarded as one of the most religiously tolerant states in the world.
