Melvin's story, Big Change, was created in a workshop with former volunteer peer educators of the youth-led NGO, Restless Development in Sierra Leone.

I facilitated a digital storytelling workshop that drew out six narratives from six young people - each one telling a unique personal story in their own voice of their experience working in rural communities across Sierra Leone. We worked together on a script and gathering visual media to tell the story. I then produced the stories in consultation with the storytellers. The result? Compelling and real stories told by young people on the front lines of development.

From Dominic's story of how he became a women's activist to Fatmata's realisation that she is a leader of young women to Melvin's work with former child soldiers, these stories give a very personal snapshot of how Restless Development's work transforms the lives of young people.
