We are scientists, technologists, researchers, artists and more. But we are problem-solvers first. We believe that technology and innovation must be used to solve problems that impact the broader society.
Every philosopher has a wise saying about time or the lack thereof. We agree, and that’s why we think, move, and build quickly.
Humans and machines have been pursuing advanced knowledge since day 0. YES, self learning is important, AND we aspire to intentionally learn with and from others too.
The biggest challenges of our time will not be solved in a cubicle by a lone genius. That is why at DSTI we believe in openly engaging with all our partners to tackle these challenges.
At DSTI, diversity is not a checkbox. It is embedded in how we work. As such, we enable an environment of open collaboration where everyone can offer their best and most fulfilling selves.
More data has been created in the past 2 years than in the entire human history! The future world for which we are creating solutions today is hard to imagine. So we must stay focused on the future.
The Directorate of Science, Technology and Innovation is situated in the Office of the President of Sierra Leone and executes its vision and functions through the Office of the Chief Minister.
DSTI works with people who are doers with a healthy dose of passion, creativity and grit for impact and purposeful problem-solving.
If you consider yourself a geek, or nerdy, or weird, or different, or just have a deep passion for

DSTI works across all sectors of government (i.e. Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs)) to accomplish its vision as mandated by the Government of Sierra Leone.
Every MDA has its specific objectives and DSTI is an additional government resource that is available for supporting their individual missions.
