Abdul Manaff Kemokai
Defence for Children, Sierra Leone
In Sierra Leone, there are around 50,000 street children vulnerable to exploitation, child labour and prostitution. Many are victims of abuse or pushed into criminal activities, but instead of receiving help from the authorities street children are often blamed. Abdul Manaff Kemokai, director of Defence for Children Sierra Leone, oversees community-based legal centres that offer assistance to youngsters who have ended up on the streets.

About Child 10
Sophie Stenbeck Family Foundation and Reach for Change have founded the Child 10 Award to highlight, support and connect bold leaders of grassroots organizations that work with innovative solutions to address urgent and pressing issues for children. Every year since 2014, the Child 10 Awardees meet in Stockholm for the Child 10 Summit, an exceptional opportunity for them to share best practices and to build on collective knowledge and experience to continue and scale their work for children.
