During thepast years of advocacy, the Network has and is still conducting activities to help achieve advocacy goal and objectives in Sierra Leone. The clear advocacy steps taken by NEAS since establishment continues to earn the group feasible recognition by Government line Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), development partners,national and international organizations including media and Civil Society groups. NEAS is still recognized as a struggling deportee group advocating on deportation issues in Sierra Leonean.

In pursuit of the broader goal and objectives of the two years Law/policy advocacy projectfor the swift formulation of a Deportation Law/policy in Sierra Leone, the Network of Ex-Asylum Seekers (NEAS) is taking clear stepss to firstly establish itself as a credibale Deportee Network in Sierra Leone and also show casing the visible plights of Sierra Leonean Deportees to the Government, its development partners including the Media, Civil Society and the wider public so as to gain greater advocacy grounds and support for the swift enactmnet of a Deportation Law/policy in Sierra Leone. The Network of Ex-Asylum Seekers continue implementation of the two years project activities despite the outbreak of the Corona Virus (COVID 19) in Sierra Leone which continues to disrupt the social, political and economic development strides already gainedover the years.

BACKGROUND - PROJECTS

NEAS is aware that the success of such advocacy initiatives largely depends on making real advocacy sacrifisies even in the face of death for the greater good of all Sierra Leoenean Deportees living in Sierra Leone noting that even the physically challenged citizens are largely protected by the ‘‘Disability Act 2012’’ as a special category of persons with special needs.    

It is specically against this backdrop that the management committee of the Network of Ax-Asylum Seekers write this report to provide its National and International Development partners and stakes with information on the implementation of project first year activities in Sierra Leone. It is expected that the funding partnmer will read this report and access relevant information that will help support continuation of project activities even after the projects’ slated two years life span.
