In the year 2007, I pioneered through the Coalition for Justice and Accountability to show communities a video of the trials of the former Liberian President Charles Taylor in The Hague throughout communities in the Western Area - Freetown. Also I was part of the drafting of the national youth policy for Sierra Leone and the juvenile justice strategy document.
I have therefore worked for and volunteered fore several organizations in my country at both international and national levels.
In February 2007, I have as a Research Assistant with the Australian National University through Dr. Augustine Park in researching on the ‘Traditional and Modern forms of Reintegration of Former Child Soldiers’. I was an IT Instructor and teacher at the Educational Centre for the Blind and the Visually Impaired with the use of computers through a screen reading software called JAWS.
Furthermore, I have been and still working with different initiatives, coalition, networks and organizations from around the world in the bid to enhance networking and collaboration on issues of common interest in the youth development arena.
I am again proud first to introduce the blind and visually impaired to the use of computers through the Blind Youth Movement in Sierra Leone, which has now grown to an Educational Centre for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Today, I am the Global Youth Coalition on HIV/AIDS National Focal Point for Sierra Leone.
I am presently representing Africa into the Youth Advisory Board of the UN-HABITAT that was established during the fourth session of the World Urban Youth and World Forums in Nanjing, China 2008.
Again, I am also serving as a youth focal point to the United Nations Millennium Campaign through the Africa United Nations Development Program office in Nairobi to coordinate the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) campaign in my country. There I have succeeded in establishing a National Youth Taskforce on the MDGs.
In Sierra Leone, I am currently serving as a Youth Commissioner to the Commission of the Civil Society Alternative Process, which is an umbrella body of CSO working in the areas of development.
Furthermore, I am proud today in serving as the African Youth Representative to the UN-HABITAT Youth Advisory Board that was established during the World Urban Forum in Nanjing, China.
Finally, I have been working with bodies like the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD XII) in Accra, Ghana, UNIDO International Conference on Renewable Energy for Africa, the African Union Commission through CIDO, where I have got several engagement among which was the development of the African Union Volunteer Corps Program for Youth in Nairobi.
