Our people

2YoungLives is a truly global project with staff and volunteers working from both Sierra Leone and the UK

The founders: Mangenda Kamara and Lucy November started 2YoungLives in 2017. Mangenda oversees the project in Sierra Leone and is the full-time research assistant for our new pilot trial. Lucy is based at Kings College London.

Our Lifeline Nehemiah Projects team:

Our amazing teams of mentors: meet our 6 pre-trial teams and watch this space for our 6 new pilot trial teams

The mentees: So far, with our original 6 teams, 250 young women have been part of 2YoungLives. These young women are resilient, resourceful and committed to creating a positive future for themselves and their children. They support and encourage each other throughout the process and many of them create positive friendships beyond their time as a mentee.
