Abstract: The community based programme aims to address the psychosocial needs of children and youth through helping to rebuild peaceful child- and youth-friendly communities through the use of cultural, creative, recreational, sportive and social activities. Within War Child, the community-based approach is relatively new and Sierra Leone was the first self-implementing War Child Programme Area (WPA) applying this approach. The programme started in 2003 in 20 communities in three severely war affected districts: Western Area, Port Loko and Bombali. At the end of 2004 a mid-term review of the pilot was carried out. In 2005 the second (2-year) cycle of programme implementation started in 20 new communities. This survey is a rapid assessment of the existing conditions in the communities (at different moments in time) in relation to the main indicators set out by WCH Sierra Leone in its logical framework for intervention.
