In brief

We Yone Child Foundation is using the power of sport on their mission to provide sustainable education and care to underprivileged children in Kroo Bay and George Brook in Sierra Leone. The project includes a sport-based programme using football, boxing or martial arts which in an upgraded version will benefit more people in the community.

Problem to be tackled

This project is created out of the rise of teenage pregnancy, sexual violence and child abuses faced by young people in the two defined slum communities and the need to engage these young people using a popular game they love – namely football, boxing and martial arts – as a platform.
