Sierra Leone Culture of Giving/Philanthropy: The name “Sierra Leone” dates back to 1462, when Portuguese explorer Pedro da Cintra, sailing down the West African coast, saw the tall mountains rising up on what is now the Freetown Peninsula and called them the “Lion Mountains,” or ” Serra Lyoa .” Successive visits by English sailors and later British colonization modified the name to “Sierra Leone.” Despite distinctive regional variations in language and local traditions, Sierra Leoneans today are united by many factors, such as their shared lingua franca Krio, widespread membership in men’s and women’s social associations and societies, and even sporting events, especially when the national football (soccer) team plays.
Giving among families and friends is common among Sierra Leoneans. Many young people are involved in community philanthropy charity activities and self-help activities at local levels. Giving Tuesday Movement Sierra Leone will spearhead and serve as a platform where charities can learn from using various tools and ideas that inspires thousands of people to embark on the act of generosity across communities.
