Sierra Leone

The Ebola crisis that began in 2014 forced businesses to close and essential services to be stretched and suspended

Helping people to provide for themselves and their families

Y Care International volunteers help empower young people living in some of the most deprived slums of Sierra Leone to transform their lives and their communities.

This includes supporting young people to acquire the skills to find a job or start their own businesses, and training them to campaign for better services for people living in slums

Projects are located in Kenema and Makeni
