Sierra Leone
Abdulai departed with the aim of reaching Italy but was stranded in the desert. He was captured, imprisoned, and robbed before he was released after payment of ransom. He did odd jobs to raise resources to sustain himself and managed to return to Sierra Leone from Niger.
Abdulai is currently a student at the Institute for Advance Management and Technology (IAMTECH) where he is studying Networking. He enjoys assisting young people to learn computing. Outside his study and work, Abdulai is a football coach, barber, and actor. He is a kind and generous person.

Returned migrants play a central role as Volunteers in the development, planning and implementation of the Migrants as Messengers campaign.

Through their stories, the learnings from their migratory experiences and their creativity, MaM Volunteers are the principal authors and actors of the campaign. From 2019-2022, a community of more than 300 volunteers across 7 countries will develop and grow. This community will also have access to diversified training and capacity-building opportunities and be invited to regular activities to support the development of an organic and sustainable community. Female engagement plays an important role within the MaM Volunteer community as they will take the lead in shaping women-to-women dialogue sessions and engaging female audiences more generally.
