Programme Development Manager Endry van den Berg

“People in Sierra Leone are very passionate about situations they are confronted with. In line debates they really want to convince others of their opinion. They won’t give up easily. It’s very interesting to discover what people think of subjects regarding children. How do they take care of children? How should they take care of children? How do they involve children and youth in decision making in their community?

Children themselves give their opinion about the way they are brought up en how it can be improved. Debates like these are a good way to get to know the daily lives of children we work with. And a good ‘stage’ for the Sierra Leonese to show their ideas, to get to understand each other and to start thinking about children’s issues. Especially in a culture where children do not automatically can have an opinion, debates give a voice to those who must be heard.”
