Ibrahim
Sierra Leone
Ibrahim initially left to reach Ukraine, but the Ukrainian Embassy in Dakar rejected his visa application. He was given another offer to travel to Spain through Morocco but was duped and dumped in Mali, which made it difficult for him to proceed with his journey due to insufficient resources.
Ibrahim attended the Saint Edwards Secondary School, Bishop Johnson Memorial School, and the Sierra Leone Muslim Brotherhood School. He holds a higher diploma in Data Processing. He is a civil society activist and advocates for capacity building and livelihood support for young people. Ibrahim also advocates sexual and reproductive health for teenagers.

Ibrahim aims to maximize his advocacy work and to become a professional singer and music producer. Through his advocacy work, Ibrahim has been able to reach out to young people on how to write and sing music. Ibrahim has a strong sense of commitment and dedication to his work. His biggest achievements are when he can share his knowledge and support young people. Ibrahim is also a music artist and does music production.

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.
