Restless Development's Director of Programmes, Ed Francis, has been on the road in Sierra Leone and has been live tweeting his visit. Check out some of the highlights below and follow @ebmfrancis for further updates!
Ed is on a support visit looking at our operations and systems, meeting our partners, such as the UK Department for International Development, and observing our programmes, especially our Ebola community mobilisation programme along with the Social Mobilisation Action Consortium.
Restless Development have been in Sierra Leone for over a decade and were able to respond quickly when the Ebola crisis struck. Our young volunteers will also lead the rebuilding of the country after Ebola passes.
