Freetown, the capital city of Sierra Leone, was founded in 1792 as a colony for freed slaves by African-Americans, Africans and West Indians. Since the cities inception in 1792, a lot of historical events have taken place including its independence in 1961 and a ten year civil war.
Today, however, with a new era and powerful generation full of energy and innovation, Freetown has yielded a new identity pushing freedom in all aspects and taking the city to higher heights! This year Sierra Leone celebrates 55 years of independence and we decided to do something a little special with limited edition scoop tees with the number 55 printed on the back of the tees.
About Project Pekin
Project Pikin is a non governmental, non profit, charity organization that seeks to cater to the needs of the growing number of street children and orphans in Sierra Leone. Our aim is to invest in these children by empowering them through healthcare, education, counselling and safe homes.
We believe that every Sierra Leonean child should feel protected and safe with access to basic needs. We aim to create a mindset within our communities that we are responsible for and owe a duty of care to every Sierra Leonean child and children should not be stigmatized or discriminated against based on tribe, class or gender.
