Nandi D. Zulu
ACTION PRO, SIERRA LEONE
Sierra Leone is a source, transit and destination country for child trafficking. Far too often, family members, relatives and friends take advantage of vulnerable young women and girls who are forced into sexual exploitation. Instead of receiving support, victims become stigmatized and isolated from society, stripped of any opportunity to complete their education or gain regular work.
Nandi D. Zulu is the founder and executive director of Action Pro Sierra Leone, an organization created to combat child trafficking. Under her leadership the organization has prevented many children from becoming victims of trafficking, exploited and abused. She is a humble and selfless leader focused on the wellbeing of her colleagues and her organization.
