He is also charged with the responsibility of traveling around the country to monitor a few of the beneficial and possibly organized programs for them to build their capacity.This approach has assisted in shaping their leadership skills and capacity-building.We can be very proud of the younger people in our team who are changing the narrative of young people in Sierra Leone.Heart-Shaped-Hands Foundation Kalabash Academy Alusine Rehme Wilson Kei Kamara Coach Desmond Dhad Tucker – South Australia Paul Russell Heart of Giving Children Foundation Mariët En Marcel In’t Veld Sorie Ibrahim KoromaoIshmail Kamara- AuthoruElle Vegt Jorien VegtereAlpha Amadu BahuAmb Lulu Lulu See MoreSee Less

There is a Chinese saying that says, " Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him a lifetime.;This is what our country Director Barrister Esq Alpha Amadu Bah is living up to as he visited some of the beneficial children in Makeni with Sorie Ibrahim Koroma who is the coordinator in Makeni and a student too at the UNIMAK University in Makeni.During his visit, Bah found out that one of the children needed a mathematical set for the NPSE Exam which is on Saturday. As per our operation policy, he should first report to the head office before any action is taken but because of the values embedded in him, Bah himself took money out of his pocket and gave it to the child so that she could get the Mathematical set for the exam.This act has made us believe that young people in Sierra Leone only need proper opportunities so they can impact their peers in society.Today is bright and tomorrow will be brighter with young people in society who have the mindset of Bah.Jorien Vegter Heart-Shaped-Hands Foundation Kalabash Academy Coach Desmond Dhad Tucker – South Australia Heart of Giving Children Foundation Paul Russell Alusine Rehme Wilson Mariët En Marcel In't Veld Ishmail Kamara- Author Kei Kamara Elle Vegt Amb Lulu Kendol Decker See MoreSee Less
