How You Can Travel to Sierra Leone



This section has a series of journals written by U.S. travelers to Sierra Leone on the first OneVillage Partners trip in 2006.  The villages had seen a few Americans or Europeans individually or pairs, but this was the first time that the villagers had seen a whole group of fifteen or sixteen Americans, not to mention hosted them for a week.  some 1000 or more villagers turned out to give the visitors a very special happy and celebratory welcome.
