Michael Margai – Creating a New Generation of Leaders and Visionaries in the Youth of Sierra Leone – The Sierra Leone Entrepreneurial and Leadership
Foundation (SELF)

The Sierra Leone Entrepreneurial and Leadership Foundation (“SELF”) is a not-for-profit, non-governmental-organisation aimed at engaging untapped potentials in the youth of Sierra Leone. Through its work, the project seeks to identify and optimize capacity building and help its beneficiaries to actively participate in the labour market through innovative platforms such as mentorship, career mentoring, interview techniques and preparations, psychometric testing and similar schemes that are suitable for capacity building.

SELF is an initiative of Michael Margai. The program envisages engagement with youth, and unemployed youth in particular, by offering them innovative skills and training such as workshops, interview techniques and preparations, entrepreneurship, leadership training, CV writing, business plan writing, negotiation skills and similar platforms. It is hoped that the scheme will greatly enhance and inspire contributions to not only capacity building but also economic development and nation building.
