Salone Uman, a community-based organization, on 10 December 2019, in collaboration with BOAJIBU Mothers Club, joined other groups around the world to celebrate and commemorate International Human Rights Day in Boajibu, Simbaru Chiefdom, Kenema District. The theme for this year’s activities was, “Stand Strong for Human Rights”. In Boajibu, members of the Boajibu Mothers Club, dressed in T-shirts and lappas, assembled at Roman Catholic Primary School on Gawa Road and marched through the streets to the Court Barry. A brass band and cultural dance group accompanied the women. The celebration was climaxed by a debate and quiz competition among the school pupils on the topic, “Human rights is a necessary condition for the development of Sierra Leone”. Addressing the gathering, the Chairlady of the Boajibu Mothers Club, Umu Kamara, said they got funding from OSIWA and have undertaken several activities. She described International Human Rights Day as important because it reminds everyone about our human rights and responsibilities as citizens of a nation. Rev. Christopher Vandi, the Parish Priest in Boajibu, said people should respect human rights. He said their target is to see peaceful co-existence and urged all to be peaceful at all times. Several contributions and concerns were expressed by the community in observance of the day.
