GLOBAL XCHANGE VOLUNTEER

My name is Santigie Ibrahim Bangura. I’m a 25 year old University grandaunt and I am from Sierra Leone. A country that was hit with one of the bloodiest civil wars in Africa, a country which corruption, nepotism, tribalism and sectionalism has eaten the fabrics of the lives of the people, a country that is richly blessed with a reasonable number of mineral resources (diamond, gold, bauxite, iron ore etc.) yet still remains the poorest in the world. I am a volunteer in the Global Xchange program in Belfast, Northern Ireland and I work with CONCENSUS.
