African Ancestry Family Reunions® in Sierra Leone

November 22 - December 4, 2023 (subject to change)

This is our 6th AAFR in Sierra Leone. We've helped over 100+ people directly through our AAFR obtain citizenship. The journey kicks off with your flight to Freetown on Tuesday, November 21, 2023. Upon arrival after airport formalities, we travel to Freetown on a short 30 minute boatride. Once in-country, we will engage in many different cultural and heritage activities in the capital city of Freetown as well as visit the Mende and Temne in the provinces. The Monuments and Relics Commission under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism will conduct a mandatory Citizenship Engagement Workshop for all perspective citizens and lead you through the required steps for citizenship.

We have planned sacred ceremonies based on your ethnic group, an African Ancestry Reveal to welcome new family members, a community service project for us to honor the African concept of reciprocity, and of course, there will be good food, shopping, nightlife as well as time to relax and restore.  

Registration & Payment Deadline: October 31, 2023
