Sierra Leone Open Government Fellows

This project was conducted while I was working as the Country Manager at Code for Sierra Leone.


Over the past few years, African governments have enthusiastically jumped onto the tech revolution that is gradually sweeping across the continent, working in collaboration with the civic tech community to create tools that enhance the interaction between the citizenry and the government.

The Sierra Leone Open Gov Fellowship

Code for Sierra Leone, in partnership with Code for Africa and the World Bank, launched the Sierra Leone Open Government Fellowship. This Fellowship gives outstanding change makers the skills, tools and resources necessary to help the Sierra Leone government adopt tech tools to become more engaging with its citizens.

Over the course of six months, each Open Government Fellow will be embedded in a specific government ministry and work with them to make their activities more open to the general public.
