A Little About Us

Future View is a media company and community organization located in Makeni, Sierra Leone.

At Future View we believe in building strong communities. To that end we find that art and media are important tools for empowering our people and enacting positive change in our communities. In order to foster the growth of the media talent in Sierra Leone we utilize two main approaches. First we are dedicated to our education and community outreach programs so that any and all members of our community can learn how to make and use art and media. The second is to grow an independent and sustainable media industry that our students can utilize to have an income that will empower them to give back and strengthen their communities.
