Meet the Team
Umaro was the first full time volunteer when the after-school programme piloted in 2016. He was quickly promoted to in-country Programmes Manager after demonstrating strong commitment and lasting impact on the community and beneficiaries. Umaro was born and bred in Makeni and has extensive experience as a sports coach. In 1999 Umaro and his family fled Makeni due to RUF attacks but later returned to continue his schooling in 2006. During the Ebola crisis, he contributed towards the fight against the deadly virus by volunteering his time to the Solverant, where he educated the community about the dangerous epidemic impacting his country. Umaro has volunteered as a sports coach at various NGOs and manages Soccer Pirates, his own boys and girls under 14 football teams.
