FoSL Welcome


Welcome to foSalone, the website of the Friends of Sierra Leone (FoSL), our website for Sierra Leone.

Friends of Sierra Leone is a non-profit organization founded in 1991 by a small group of returned Peace Corps Volunteers, soon joined by their Sierra Leonean friends and other volunteers who had served in Sierra Leone.

We are a country-of-service affiliate of the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA).  However, both the NPCA and Friends of Sierra Leone are independent of the Peace Corps , and membership in FoSL is open to anyone who shares our goals, which are:

  • Aid in the development and well-being of Sierra Leone and its people.
  • Increase understanding among Americans and others about Sierra Leone.
  • Serve as a "Virtual Cottontree," a gathering place for all of us to share our ideas and thoughts.
