What’s happened in Sierra Leone after Ebola? Have you ever wondered what it really takes to alleviate poverty at the village level in one of the world’s poorest countries?
Join us April 6 in Cincinnati to hear directly from Paramount Chief Caulker on remarkable work he’s doing in his rural chiefdom. This is a unique opportunity to hear directly from one of Sierra Leone’s most prominent traditional leaders.
Chief Caulker will speak about programs developed in Bumpeh Chiefdom in partnership with Sherbro Foundation to overcome poverty and recover from Ebola.
The free program on April 6 at 7 p.m. will be held at Hyde Park Methodist Church, 1342 Grace Ave. at Observatory Ave. It’s open to the public. Feel free to bring a friend. Parking is in the rear behind the church.
A national leader – Chief Caulker’s thirty years as Paramount Chief span Sierra Leone’s post-independence period, their 11-year civil war and its aftermath, and today’s modern nation building. He has extensive national experience ranging from senior roles in Sierra Leone’s government and its Parliament to national leader for chieftaincy. Under his chairmanship, the National Council of Paramount Chiefs has become an effective voice for the critical role of chiefs in peace-building, security, land management and traditional customs.
I hope you’ll join us April 6 for an interactive discussion with Chief Caulker. You’ll learn about Sierra Leone behind the headlines with slides of life and work from my November 2015 trip. We’ll leave plenty of time for your questions.
If you plan to attend, please do us the favor of an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Executive Director, Sherbro Foundation
Met him in Freetown when I was with Doris Caulker, the other Caulker Paramount Chief.
Yes, it was when we were at the final dinner of Friends of Sierra Leone trip to Freetown in 2011. I’ve since seen Chief Doris. A remarkable family.
