The Sierra Leone Correctional Service Act 2014 section (9) sub section (1) established the Sierra Leone Correctional Service Council. The council consists of eleven (11) members headed by the Honorable Vice President who is the Chairman. The Council has oversight over the Sierra Leone Correctional Service by providing strategic direction and shall advise the President on all major policy matters relating to Correctional centers and the Service including administration, finance and any other matter as the President shall require.
My name is Sahr Fanday, I was imprisoned for ten years at the Sierra Leone Correctional Service. I had to learn some skills while being imprisoned and one of which was tailoring. I concentrated on the job that was taught with a specific mindset that being in jail “is not the end of my life”.
As a beneficiary of the corrections, I have decided to open a shop with the tailoring machine that was given to me to restart my life.
