$50,000 Knowledge Bank Launched
Society for Knowledge Management-Sierra Leone (SKM-SL) has launched a knowledge bank to assist civil society organizations and the country at large in relevant record keeping and knowledge management.
Launching the knowledge bank project in Freetown past Thursday, Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA) representative, Joe Hindoveh, lauded SKM-SL for a timely introduction of the bank.
Before cutting the tape to declare the place open to researchers, Joe Hindoveh expressed delight for the launching of the project which, he said, will be of tremendous benefit to civil society organizations, policy makers and the nation as a whole. He added that the project seeks to address the needs of researchers, pointing out that though the country has gone a long way in development, there is the dire need for more proper record keeping and knowledge sharing.
In his vote of thanks, Director of Society for Knowledge Management, Umaru Bangura, commended OSIWA for its fifty thousand Dollars ($50,000) knowledge bank project implemented in Freetown and Magburaka where, he revealed, the project will also be formally launched this month. He said information sharing is crucial to national development. He assured that SKM-SL would collaborate with other pertinent institutions in the country to actualize its vision in the area of information sharing. He concluded that during their previous survey, they realized that information sharing is necessary for development.
