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. 


What is the problem? 
Every single day, children all around the world fall victim to violence. In Liberia, this happens to almost half of the young people under 15. Child trafficking is one form of violence in which children are sold and forced into prostitution, forced to work, or enslaved. Many children in Ewelle’s community suffer from child trafficking.

Ewelle believes that children and youths should grow up in an environment free of violence and child trafficking and he has decided to take action!

What is Ewelle’s solution?
His solution consists of three steps:

  1. KNOW: the first step is to inform children, youths & adults so that they understand what child trafficking is, what its risks are and how children fall victim to it.
  2. CONNECT: once the facts have been reviewed, the emotional side of child trafficking will also be discussed. Survivors will share their experiences with participants.
  3. MOBILIZE & INFLUENCE: the final step is encouraging the community to take action against child trafficking. And motivate them to encourage others in turn. Ewelle will organize a protest march, the Walk of Freedom, to support this goal. He hopes that some 100 to 200 young people between the ages of 17 to 25 will participate.

What is the goal?
Ewelle hopes to end child trafficking in at least one area of the city.

How does Ewelle work? 
Ewelle leads his own project with support from the organization he works for. He will invite people to his meetings through e-mail, social media and telephone calls. He will also visit people at home. The meetings will take place at the university.
