Spotted in Madam Wokie, Philip Joel Cole, Queens Young Leader 2015
Congratulations to PJ Cole who was yesterday honored with a Queens Young Leader award for his community work and fight against Ebola in Sierra Leone. The Queens Young Leader award recognizes exceptional people aged 18-29, who are taking the lead in their communities and using their skills to transform lives around the Commonwealth.
PJ Cole is the Executive Director of Lifeline Nehemiah Projects, an organisation dedicated to holistic development and rebuilding Sierra Leone. PJ moved from Sierra Leone to the UK to study law, where he joined LifeLine Projects, supporting vulnerable young people. In 2012 he was asked to restructure the school and home for ex-child soldiers that was established by his father in Sierra Leone. PJ now directs a safe-home, four schools and a vocational skills programme that equips vulnerable young people to be community leaders.
