Call For Participation
“Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Winston Churchill
The memory project led by the Jeneba project is calling on all Sierra Leoneans with firsthand experiences of the civil war between 1991 and 2002 to participate in the memory project by offering oral testimonies for the benefit of current and future generations. This oral history project is intended to encourage Sierra Leoneans who were victims or participants in the civil war to tell their stories as ordinary people who have survived some of the most horrendous moments of our shared history.
Others have already written several versions of our story, but the aim of the Jeneba Project is to let your children learn from you. No Sierra Leonean would like to see a reoccurrence of what happened during that dreadful decade of our past, but it is only by reflecting on where we went wrong that we can guide future generations from wandering our line of failure.
Please contact the Jeneba Project if you would like to participate in this project. The Jeneba Project staff members will visit you to record your testimony. All stories are video recorded and will be available for public view.
