CROSSROADS SIERRA LEONE
Founded in 2012

Congo Town, Freetown
Crossroads Sierra Leone was launched in 2012 with thirty-six students in four prisons, including two juvenile facilities. The greatest challenge facing the ministry’s work among juveniles is the need for reentry assistance. Since juvenile offenders are usually street children, they have nowhere to go but back to the streets, where they are almost guaranteed to return to crime in order to survive.
Conditions in the adult prisons are some of the worst in the world. Overcrowding, appalling sanitation, harsh punishments and lack of adequate food make life almost unbearable. Director Lahai Kargbo, who is also the founder of Prison Watchmen Ministries, is excited to partner with Crossroads to bring the hope of God’s Word into the darkness of his country’s prisons.
I am so grateful to God for having Crossroads in my beloved country of Sierra Leone, and I am encouraged by your love for Christ, the lost and all those who are benefiting from the ministry God has entrusted to Crossroads. –Lahai Kargbo, Crossroads Sierra Leone Director
