Lakka, SIERRA LEONE

Abdul Sesay studying at Saint Michael Center in Lakka near Freetown. Sesay is finishing primary school and would like to continue his schooling. In the meantime he is also taking carving lessons. Abdul is taking part in a rehabilitation programme run by Free Minor Africa, a charity which helps former juvenile prison inmates to reintegrate into life. In 2010, Sesay was accused of having a portable radio that belonged to another man. The man hit him very hard which caused him subsequent breathing problems. He was arrested and remained at the police station for eight days before being sentenced and sent to Pademba prison in Freetown. He was released in October 2010 after a journalist paid 320,000 leones (EUR 60, or a prison official's wages for two months) distributed between the bail, the prosecutor and the money for the granter. Abdul is now back at school making up for the lost years of his youth. [The second part of this photographic project was made possible with funds which Fernando Moleres received from the Tim Hetherington Grant in 2012]
