Preamble: The policy initiatives are purposefully interconnected as their implementation will create sustainability within Constituency 103 and the Puejhun district


Employment: The high rate of unemployment in the nation is resultant of underdevelopment of the country’s human resources. There are untapped talents that must be harnessed for innovative initiatives with a view to constructing a sustainable environment for:

- Capacity Building: through this campaign, a mentor-mentee/protégé relationship with a view to maintaining sustainable skills and knowledge transfer.

- Research & Development: it is not enough to acquire knowledge; considerable efforts must be given to establishment of an innovative institution that focuses on Research and Development. These initiatives will create sustainable employment opportunities.


Health: There are many undiagnosed maladies that needlessly claim the lives of many Sierra Leoneans – this is unacceptable. Through a medical partnership initiative, wherein Sierra Leonean medical professionals in the Diaspora would provide industry best practices and partnership with the medical professionals in the country to serve the modernized health clinics in the constituency and district

- Preventative Medicine: provide annual physical evaluations to determine the health and welfare of members in the constituency

- Hygiene: proper use of modern facilities, access to clean water


Education: The old adage resonates with the Sierra Leone condition – education is the key to success; that said; comprehensive and transformative education will open the doors of limitless potential. (Education should not be a conditionality for Sierra Leone’s Promising Future. While other children are dreaming of “When I grow up…” Sierra Leonean children are thinking of “If I grow up…)   

- STEAM: Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics – in order to have a well-equipped work force that will be globally competitive, the academic curriculum must be revised to harness the untapped talents in the region. The traditional style of academia must be revised with a view to introducing a growth mindset approach to learning.

- Youth and Gender Empowerment: one of the impediments to sustainable nation building is the lack of investment in the youth population; especially, the girl child who continues to be deprived equal access to education and development of their talents. Introduce the Perspective, Perception and Purpose Program (3Ps Program): in an effort to empower the Gender and Youth communities in the district, we must begin the process of self-definition and identification (Perception); the value we give to self and the community (Perspective) and commitment to community and nation (Purpose) – the end result is National Consciousness.

- Adult Literacy: the constant marginalization of the nation’s non-literate citizens results in disenfranchisement of their role in government and governance. When the citizens are not versed in the official language of the nation, they cannot actively participate in the dialogue that pertains to their welfare and well-being. Moreover, translating messages from one language to the next might be challenging because idiomatic expressions are not easily translatable – as such, important messages are contextually lost in translation. Promote mobile and community-based learning

- Infrastructure

Roads

ICT (Information Communication Technology)

Power & Energy

o Green Technology (Solar, Wind, Methane and Hydro)

Water

Waste Management & Sanitation
