My books are mostly dealing with Development Goals in Post-war Sierra Leone and how to achieve them.

During my research I came across some loop holes both from that of the government partners and the private cooperations as well.

I intentionally focused on the Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) which is a holistic program that covers every aspect of development, ranging from eradicating poverty to sustainable relationships within countries and one of my suggestions was that the United Nations could achieve the Sustainable Development Goals in Sierra Leone, if only they recognise the presence of the cultural diversity that is in Sierra Leone and the line in which the government is working with. Government needs to be incorporating the Sustainable Development Goals in their policies and urge ministries and organization to follow the same trend. I am pleading to Ministries, organizations, government owned companies, CSO etc. to read this piece of work as it covers issues of development in the country. As a submission point I believe that the Alternative type of development approach is the best for third world countries in general and Sierra Leone in particular. Thank you for reading.

There’s more to learn from this page. Check out for my next project: The Anthology of Masks in Sierra Leone. This is a joint project and I’ll be sharing my partner’s identity when the time’s right.”
