About Sierra Leone

Freetown, the capital, is a port city and the commercial hub. Settled by freed and rescued slaves in 18th century, it was made the seat of government for the British territories in West Africa in 1821 and became the capital in 1961.

People groups: West Atlantic (45.3%), Mande (43.8%), Kwa (1.3%), Krio (8.6%), Other (1%).

Religions: Muslim (70%), Traditional ethnic (18%), Christian (11%), Hindu (0.04%).

Sierra Leone was founded as a home for freed slaves in 1797. It was the first West African country to be evangelised. The first Protestant Church was started among freed slaves in Freetown, yet after over 200 years of effort, under 12% of the country claims to be Christian. (From 'Operation World')
