A Framework for Citizenship Education in Sierra Leone

image of A Framework for Citizenship Education in Sierra Leone

This book has been written to lay the foundations of a single curriculum framework for citizenship education in Sierra Leone. It is a direct result of a consultative process aimed at complementing and consolidating a number of citizenshiprelated initiatives within and outside government circles in Sierra Leone. The framework it presents looks at some significant and critical themes, and goes on to set parameters and suggest guidelines to ensure its successful implementation.




More than ever before, citizenship education is a compelling priority in our curriculum. The past eleven years of toil and destruction, and our determination never to experience civil strife again, have impelled key stakeholders, including the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, the National Commission on Democracy and Human Rights, the Anti-Corruption Commission and the Ministry of Gender and Children's Affairs to come together in active partnership to conceptualise and develop a framework for citizenship education. As a consequence of our experience, i.e. ‘what life has taught us’, we are now striving to sustain the hard-earned peace and build a foundation for a peace that will last.
