Life of the freed slaves are not always easy - and for some youth in freetown it is a daily struggle for getting food and some relaxation. Even in the toghest areas of livelyhood - fellowship and hard work keeps the communities running.

But is surviving the only parametre for succes?

How can one of the wealthies countries in the world, drop a seed and it will grow dig a little bit further an you find treasures that is for the envy of the world, happen to one of the monetary poorest? In Sierra Leone this document is for the eyes of local government, in the white Yurri building, for the world another view into the one of the consequenses of the unconsious quest for capital.
In this we ask for our natural resources to be proberly managed.

We remember how it was - and should not be.
