A few cultural teachings from Koi:

  • Children are instructed not to make direct eye contact with adults out of respect.
  • A woman almost always does the cooking in the home. If a man is seen cooking, it shows that he is not dominant in the household.
  • Always eat a little (even if you’re full) of what someone else has prepared for you – out of respect.
  • Sierra Leoneans’ order of priorities are: family, community, region and then country. Their mentality focuses on what's best for the group, not necessarily for the individual.
