Ewelle is a human rights activist with a passion for children’s rights. He wants every child and youth in Liberia to feel safe and have the opportunity to visit school. Ewelle loves art, volunteer work, reading, and sport.

He is youth coordinator of the 100 Million Campaign which focusses on:

  • Youth support: every young person has a right to safety, education, and freedom.
  • Attitude change: a change in the attitude of the population will end illiteracy and violence against children.

Every December the organization organizes a campaign against child labor. The aim is to inform the school and village leaders, parents, children, youths and the government.

Ewelle collaborates with several different youth organizations in Liberia. For instance, he works with ANPPCAN (African Network for the Prevention and Protection Against Child Abuse and Neglect), KidsRights’s Liberian project partner. ANPPCAN aims to improve child protection by strengthening the community, families, professionals and the government.

Ewelle hopes for a safe, educated and free world with young leaders. 

Highlights

Environment
Godfrey’s Green Life
What is the problem?  Godfrey sees in his surroundings, for example on the beach, on the street where he lives and in schoolyards, a lot of rubbish lying around. People do not know what to do with rubbish; recycling is hardly ever done. Godfrey thinks that many people do not know exactly what they should do with their rubbish. That’s why he wants to take action! What is Godfrey’s solution? Godfrey would like to inform his community about the environment and its preservation. In this way people will be more aware of their surroundings and maybe even pick up the rubbish lying around. To get people to be more aware, he wants to plant 50 trees with a group of people, because this will contribute to the preservation of nature and the improvement of the climate. When planting the trees he wants tell participants the importance of this action. He also wants to show how to recycle and re-use plastic by making things for the home, for example. Citizens can make a difference in the preservation of the environment by taking good care of it. Godfrey wants to raise awareness by giving information and taking immediate action, What is the goal?  Godfrey’s goal is to see a difference in his surroundings, that people are responsible for their rubbish and that the streets are no longer filthy. He wants to reach out to at least 100 people with his project. How will Godfrey work?  Godfrey will set up a team who will work with him on his project. He sees this as the biggest challenge in his project. After his project, he will look after and care for the young trees, which will be planted during his project. Who does Godfrey need?   ·       His brother and two friends (16 -18 years old) will help him with the project. ·       Participants of all ages. What doesGodfrey need?   ·       Advice and guidance to set up his project and to make it a success. ·       Trees
