Alfred

Alfred lives with his older sister in Bo, the second largest city of Sierra Leone, located in West Africa. He was in the 4th grade when his father tragically passed away, leaving his mother to raise Alfred and his sister on her own. Their only source of income came from his mother’s small scale, subsistence farming. Having survived a civil war as well as the 2013 Ebola crisis, Alfred has learned to live through and overcome difficult times. Growing up in a Muslim family, Alfred met Christ when a friend invited him to church. Described by his area director as ambitious, courageous, and dedicated, Alfred now contributes immensely to the development of youth in his community as a leader and mentor in Young Life, where he has served since 2009.

Selected for the Developing Global Leaders program, Alfred is now studying computer science and information technology with the desire of becoming an IT specialist. He believes he can help mold the character of the next generation and change their current mind set to impact the community in a positive way. His courageous attitude will enable him to withstand challenges and mobilize others for the betterment of his community. He will be the first in his family to graduate university.
