A one week pilot phase of the participatory risk assessment survey exercise for 15 facilitators and 150 participants has ended in Kenema, Kono, Bo, Makeni and Freetown respectively.
The survey was facilitated by the National Social Security and Insurance Trust (NASSIT) in collaboration with the Social Services Division in the Ministry of Development and Economic Planning.
The essence of the pilot phase of the participatory risk assessment survey was to identify the risk of all economic activities and their characteristic.
The peer wise comparism and preference scoring in the distribution process, indicates the three categories or stages and prioritisation of their risk including the social protection needs among others.
According to the local consultant of the participatory risk assessment survey Mrs. Hawa Musa the survey is geared to sensitize the public about their advantage to get membership enrolment in NASSIT.
This she said is because the government of Sierra Leone is charged with the responsibility for the future social protection needs of every Sierra Leonean.
She encouraged all and sundry especially the private sector engaged in the economic activities to see reason about their old age and in times of crisis, to decide to come on board NASSIT.
