Sierra Leone Goodwill Ambassador Ms. Isatu Timbo-Nwokedi (in photo) recently attended The Way to Happiness Foundation International Convention in Glendale, California where she met with program administrators, government officials and Hollywood Celebrities such as Nancy Cartwright (Emmy Award winning film, television and voice over actress) who are successfully using The Way to Happiness program in their respective countries and communities.
Since the original publication of The Way to Happiness in 1981 by Author and Humanitarian Mr. L. Ron Hubbard as a non-religious common sense guide to better living, response has been immediate and remarkable. Now an international movement with more than 350 Chapters across the world, there have been more than 100 million copies of The Way to Happiness distributed in all 195 nations across the planet thus bringing positive, common sense values to the world.
Since its release, The Way to Happiness program has been used with great success by governments, administrators and communities across the world from the US and South America to areas of the Middle East and Africa to instill values and a positive approach to both youth and adults alike—resolving conflicts, reducing overall crime and conflict and thus paving the way for a bright future.
Ms. Timbo has been working with The Way to Happiness Foundation International in Los Angeles to establish the first Way to Happiness Chapter in Sierra Leone and bring this program to her native country and its educational system. She has been commended and praised by the First Lady of Sierra Leone for her continuous and dedicated efforts to bring assistance to Sierra Leone in the form of workable programs and aide.
Goodwill Ambassador Ms. Timbo has expressed her deep appreciation for The Way to Happiness program and is extremely excited to see the positive change and impact it will bring to Sierra Leone in the near future.

MEANWHILE, in a letter sent to Evan Perkins, of the Program Development Association for Better Living and Education International, Los Angeles, California, USA, in response to a letter introducing the program to Sierra Leone, an official of Government, Mrs. Mary Nyelenkeh said that ” Education is definitely one of our priority sector that we would wish you introduce the program.” She promised to grant the team “access to the Sierra Leone Broadcasting Cooperation which is the national television and radio service.” She went on : ”As we stated in our initial letter, we will also like for the program to be introduced to the wider public through the Attitudinal and Behavioral Change Secretariat which His Excellency the President established upon his assumption to office in 2007. We are in the process of scheduling the consultative meetings and will confirm with you our final preference.” She also gave the assurance that ”We are collaborating with key institutions including the Ministry of Education Science and Technology and the Attitudinal Change Secretariat to identify preferences for the implementation of your program”.
