Background

The Government of Sierra Leone’s Medium-Term National Development Plan identifies Human Capital Development as a key priority to sustainable economic growth with education being its flagship program. At the 2019 Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States, (ECOWAS) summit, His Excellency the President, Dr. Julius Maada Bio stated, ‘“Our country defines Human Capital development in terms of equal and free access to quality education – that also involves skills training and innovation – we believe this makes the human being fit for purpose in the twenty-first century and all ready to fully partake in the global economy; healthcare – by strengthening our healthcare systems and services; and food security.”  In this regard, DSTI in partnership with UNICEF has developed and launched several digital learning initiatives to support impactful and sustainable remote learning in schools, and universities. Also, opportunities for citizens to upscale, acquire the requisite skills for the workforce. One of Such Initiatives is the “Sierra Leone Learning Passport”, an online, mobile and offline platform that enables access to digital learning materials that are relevant, flexible and free.
