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.
