Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country” JFK Sierra Leone has always been at the epicenter of poverty, calamity, inequality. and corruption.

The ‘Save Salone Movement” was founded in January 2017 by Murtala Kamara. SSM is a social movement with an aim of using media advocacy for development on a wide range of national issues, especially those affecting ordinary Sierra Leoneans.
SSM was borne out of the need to address some of these concerns in a bid to set Sierra Leone on the right path to a better country for all, regardless of tribe, region, sex, religion and political affiliation. SSM believes that Sierra Leoneans deserve better; they must enjoy the benefit of their country’s vast natural resources. As a social movement, they are galvanizing and mobilizing Sierra Leoneans of all ages to wake up, stand up and participate in the processes of national development.
