About our activity

Get to know us

The main purpose of the Sierra Leonean Canadian Federation is to unite all Sierra Leonean community organizations across Canada into a single group with centralized control. Each organization that comprises the federation maintains control over its own operations. The Sierra Leonean Canadian Federation ( intends to bring Sierra Leoneans together through multiple causes including: education, human rights, hunger, poverty, health, children, and disaster relief.

All of our resources and energy at SALCAF are focused on working in partnership with community and colleagues in a way that responds to immediate needs, invites people into a journey of supporting individuals in meeting their goals, and engages our society to tackle the root causes and systemic barriers that continue to contribute to poverty. We believe that if we combine our collective resources and wisdom, together we can reach our goal of ending poverty in a generation. We invite you to join us with One Heart, One Mind, and One Voice.


Our mission is to change Sierra Leone through education.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
Nelson Mandela


“There can be no peace without justice and respect for human rights.”
Irene Khan


“One of the greatest feelings in the world is knowing that we as individuals can make a difference. Ending hunger is a goal that is literally within our grasp.”
Jeff Bridges

We stand for

Our people

volunteers do not
necessarily have the time;
they just have the heart.

We always love

Our causes


Clean water and access to food are some of the simplest things that we can take for granted each and every day. In Sierra Leone, these can be some of the hardest resources to attain.

Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink Just think about it.

Education is power.
