    Abstract

    In this article I describe an adult literacy project I visited while in Sierra Leone earlier this year. This small West African country had been my home for two years, from 1989 to 1991, when I worked with Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO) as a lecturer in librarianship. On returning to Ireland, I became involved in an Irish-registered charity, the Sierra Leone Ireland Partnership (SLIP), which seeks to create links between Ireland and Sierra Leone and to highlight issues relating to Sierra Leone in the media and elsewhere.
