I visited several programs of Y Care International and the YMCA in Makeni, a few hours drive north east of the Leonian capital Freetown. I met a young woman learning to do metal work and welding, several auto-mechanic students, culinary students, and visited several schools which had peace clubs where students put on plays to explore and sensitize about various issues including domestic violence, conflict resolution, and drug abuse.
