9. A Man’s Fight for Girls’ Education: Chernor Bah on Poverty, Ebola and Political Turmoil in Sierra Leone

As Chernor Bah likes to say “out of misery there is opportunity” and this has definitely been true in his life. Through poverty, war, refugee camps and an epidemic, he has been able to advance his vision for a better world. As a girls’ rights advocate, Chernor has dedicated his life to strengthening the voices of youth in emergency settings in his home country Sierra Leone, as well as in Liberia, Lebanon, Haiti and Uganda.

As a teenager, Chernor traveled the country listening to children’s stories, including those from former child soldiers. His drive was simple: to include children’s voices in Sierra Leone’s peacebuilding process. In this episode, we talk about the civil war in Sierra Leone, issues surrounding girls' education, the Ebola outbreak and how Chernor is fighting to rebuild his country and advance girl’s rights.
