Returning to Sierra Leone after 14 months, I knew why I work hard for Sherbro Foundation. Yes, projects with our local partner CCET are hitting important milestones and expanding. But it's the people we reach and how their lives are affected that matter. Most gratifying is reaching people in the smallest village and seeing what they do with only the most modest help. While reading the stories below, I hope you'll agree. When I return there, Sierra Leone doesn't just say hello. It embraces me. Here's some of my images and impressions from my recent trip. I hope you'll catch up on our project news below. We're always interested in your comments and feedback.
