Sierra Leoneans
living in
Berlin & Brandenburg

The association, Sierra Leone Community Berlin Brandenburg e.V. (SLCBB) was founded in 1991 to establish and develop the relationship between the cultures of Sierra Leone and Germany and thereby creating a union for Sierra Leoneans living in Berlin and Brandenburg. To date the Sierra Leone community in Berlin and Brandenburg comprises of approximately 800 members.

Descendants of Sierra Leone enjoy bringing their culture closer to the German public, by conducting activities, such as discussions, symposia, development ventures, Arts exhibitions, and other Socio-cultural events, that incorporate historical elements of both the Sierra Leonean and German culture.

To maintain and further nourish the relationship between these cultures, there is a strong requirement in investing time and effort in the educational work with children, the youths, and young adults.

To ensure the successful implementation of strengthening the cross-cultural interactions between these two cultures and offer educational programmes, the need to acquire a space in form of a property is a necessity.

SLCBB Community Center @ Berlin

To ensure the successful implementation of strengthening the cross-cultural interactions between these two cultures and offer educational programmes, the need to acquire a space in form of a property is a necessity.
The SLCBB e.V. is therefore seeking to acquire a 50 square meter property to achieve our goals, to bring these visions to life.

This centre will not only serve as a hub to achieve networking of members of the Sierra Leone community of Berlin and Brandenburg, Germans and friends, but also a space for hosting regular events, such as sports competitions, cultural shows, symposia and many more.
This centre will be a safe place where e.g Africans from the Ukraine without Ukrainian citizenship, refugees and Africans without a fix residency can find refuge and aid in integration. It shall be a place that cuts across cultures, where children will be taught and mentored irrespective of their race or cultural backgrounds. This place will also aid seniors to combat loneliness and promote wellbeing. Cultural cohesion will be marked by events to promote and celebrate the beauty in diversity. It will be a daily gathering point where African cuisine will be offered at its finest. The association envisions this centre to possess the “sine qua non“, to forster cohesion among Africans and the world in Berlin Brandenburg.

To achieve the above, we need to raise €30,000 which will provide the space (50 Square meters), furniture and essential amenities. To date, association has raised €5000.

There is a dire need to raise €25,000. We are therefore reaching out for your generous contributions.
100% of donations will be spent on acquiring the centre. There will be no personnel costs.
Thank you and we look forward to your generous contributions for the sole purpose of acquiring a centre for a just cause.
