Organizational structure

Free Your Mind has the ambition to be a positive infuence in Sierra Leone. Together with professionals and local experts, who are connected to Free Your Mind on a voluntary basis, we are working on this ambition.

Free Your Mind is a legal registered organization in Sierra Leone since 25 September 2009. We have registered the organization by the ‘Ministry of Youth and Sport’ and by ‘City Counsil’. (We are still waiting for the ‘Ministry of Tourism’ to approve our application. )

The organizational structure is as follows. (All functions within Free Your Mind S/L are open for both men and woman.)
