Abstract:Early inhabitants, expeditions and migrations have all contributed to shaping Sierra Leone's rich cultural, religious and historical traditions, with archaeological evidence suggesting that people have occupied Sierra Leone for at least 2,500 years.
Religion plays a prominent role in Sierra Leonean society, with followers of Islam comprising 60% of the population, Christianity 30% and African indigenous religions 10%. Muslims and Christians coexist peacefully, and religious respect and tolerance is the norm. Principles of charity and philanthropy are deeply ingrained in Sierra Leonean society and traditional ways of life.

- The World Guide to CSR: A Country-by-Country Analysis of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility
The World Guide to CSR is the first book to provide comparable national profiles that describe the evolution and practice of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility (CSR) for 58 countries and 5 global regions. Each regional and national profile includes key information about the relevant CSR history, country-specific issues, trends, research and leading organisations. The purpose of the book is to give CSR professionals (including managers, consultants, academics and NGOs focusing on the social, environmental and ethical responsibilities of business) a quick reference guide to CSR in different regional and national contexts. This unique resource will be an essential acquisition for all organisations who need to benchmark their CSR strategies throughout different regions and cultures and want the best possible intelligence on the key issues and concerns relating to corporate social responsibility in all of the markets in which they operate.
