For the 7th Annual GWB Ball, The GWB Commission’s campaign for a ONE Sierra Leone is a call to action to bring Sierra Leoneans together as ONE heart, ONE country, and ONE people first and foremost in the name of Sierra Leone’s betterment, prosperity, and future.

“This campaign is a representation of what we want to see Sierra Leone as, but also keeping true to our respective traditional cultures and traditions. After all, what makes Sierra Leone special is the fact that we are a tiny melting pot of differences yet we are very tolerant of one another.” says Co-­Chair and marketing director Sarran Lan Jabbie.
