Brief History

Sierra Leoneans in Technology (SLinT) is a non-profit organization founded by a group of Sierra Leoneans in the technology industry, including Sahr Lebbie, Gad Swaray, Tamba Lamin, and Alie Bangura. Together, they came together to collaborate, network, and support one another, recognizing the need for greater opportunities and resources in the technology sector in Sierra Leone.

As the organization grew, more Sierra Leoneans became involved in its activities, including development, mentoring, and advocacy for using technology to promote social and economic development in Sierra Leone. Driven by its mission to promote technological advancement and social responsibility, SLinT established itself as a leading voice in the technology community, thanks in large part to the dedication and vision of its founding members.

In the words of Steve Jobs, “Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have faith in people, that they’re good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.” This sentiment is at the heart of SLinT’s mission to empower Sierra Leoneans to leverage technology to create positive change in their communities.

Today, SLinT continues to expand its reach and impact, attracting a diverse range of individuals, businesses, and organizations who share its vision. Through its initiatives, events, and partnerships, SLinT aims to create a more equitable and prosperous future for Sierra Leoneans by leveraging the power of technology.
