Our partnership is based on ideas of trust and shared accountability between King’s Sierra Leone Partnership and our local partners in Sierra Leone. The partnership is long-term but not permanent, and is based on reciprocal learning and mutual benefits.The strong relationships we’ve developed with our partners, as well as the dedication of our international volunteers, allows us to implement and support affordable, resilient, and integrated programmes that are aligned with Sierra Leonean health priorities. This means that the improvements we make have a better chance of becoming permanent positive change.
