[yele] Presidential presence in Yele


"... We commend you for your efforts and we will use this pilot in Yele and see how we will learn from the Yele, Gbonkolenken example for the development in the country."
President Koroma in his speech to the people of Yele on March 9th, 2012 

This is a bit of older news, but although most of eLuma's team members remain State-side, much has been going on in Yele thanks to the able coordination of our on-the-ground manager Laila, with the help of our partner the Lion Heart Foundation.

Back in March, the president of Sierra Leone, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma, paid an important visit to Yele to check out eLuma and the Lion Heart Foundation's development projects.  Check out the full story featured in Cocorioko, Sierra Leone's most widely-read online newspaper.
