This documentary looks at the Diaspora support in rebuilding Sierra Leone after decades of bad governance and socio-economic collapse exacerbated by the war. The country has acute shortages of professional, technical and managerial capacity in the public service. This is a huge challenge for the government as the country is deprived of doctors, nurses, teachers, engineers, managers and administrators that it needs to break the cycle of poverty and underdevelopment. With most of the countrys best educated, most skilled, trained and experienced residing in the Diaspora, an innovative approach was needed to tap into this Migrant Capacity by bringing it back to the country and applying it. Through the UNDP supported project , Delivering Results and Accelerating Public Sector Reform with Diaspora Resources and Experts from the South, experts from Diaspora are helping in rebuilding Sierra Leone, stronger and better. This project is supported by UNDP, Open Society Institute/OSI Soros Foundation and the Hewlett Foundation.
