Apart from the excitement of seeing friends they had lost sight of for many years, the youngsters were enthused by the appeal from exciting speakers: Harriet Gaima, Ibrahim Tommy and Modupe Taylor-Pearce. Later, Emmanuel Gaima, facilitated a session when the participants put together their Charter: Vision, Mission, Commitments and Mutual Accountability Mechanisms.
|Keen to commit themselves to a life with integrity|
Our hope is that, through ventures such as this, we can start to have a significant impact on the country more widely. We are starting to position ourselves so that we are able to have an impact more broadly in Sierra Leone.
We aim to re-inspire each other to live and work well. We aim to encourage other likeminded people to believe it is possible and to join forces so that the habits of corruption and greed get left behind.
