Marcus Olsson


Traveling to Sierra Leone for the first time in 2015, Marcus started by teaching our children in Kroo Bay. After returning home to Sweden, he maintained a close relationship with our Team and supported our activities through fundraising. Marcus came back to Freetown in 2017 as part of his Master’s research and is now planning a new trip to collaborate with WYCF on an Arts project in late 2018.

Sara met WYCF in 2015 when she travelled from the USA to Freetown to photograph our work in Kroo Bay and George Brook. She has since remained an avid supporter, having fundraised to alleviate our running costs and even travelled back to Sierra Leone to further document our activities.

Liz Hunter and Helen Lee

Liz Hunter and Helen Lee

Liz and Helen first expressed their interest in WYCF in late 2016. After months of planning, they became keen fundraisers in the UK and finally met our Team in Freetown to help us launch the Girls to Women Reusable Pads project in October 2017. They remain closely involved and supportive of WYCF activities.

Luisa dreamt of traveling to Africa since she was 7 years old. During her final years in high school she left for her first volunteering experience at a wildlife conservation farm in Namibia. After her graduation she went back to Namibia, volunteered at another animal rehabilitation farm in South Africa and then backpacked through Australia and New Zealand. After returning to her home country Germany she signed up at University for Translation Studies, but after a trip to Uganda she decided to make her fascination for Africa her main-occupation and studied Cultures and Societies of Africa at the University of Bayreuth. Meanwhile she volunteered in Ghana and with a growing interest for West Africa – and in particular for Sierra Leone – she found out about We Yone Child Foundation (WYCF). She came to Sierra Leone for the first time in 2018 and enjoyed her experience with WYCF so much that she returned for a 6-month internship the same year. In 2021 she is going to graduate from University, holding a Bachelor in Anthropology. If she’s not busy studying or working in part time jobs she loves discovering the outdoors by foot or by bicycle, experimenting in the kitchen and making further travel plans. Apart from German and English she has a basic knowledge of Swahili, French and Polish.
