Following the devastating 11 year civil war in Sierra Leone West Africa (1991-2002), Compassion for Peace and Child Survival Sierra Leone, (CPCSSL) came into existence in 2005. CPCSSL was born in Fourah Bay College by three sociology students. CPCSSL’s primary objective was to attend to the holistic care of the people living in post war Sierra Leone. Ensuring that human rights, mental health, and sustainability efforts were being met to ensure a successful transition after the war took place. CPCSSL provides psychosocial interventions at both individual and organizational levels, partnering with; health care providers, law enforcement, educators, clergy members and business owners to guarantee the needs of these victims are being met. CPCSSL has worked to reunite family members displaced by the war as well as advocate and create a safe environment for those who live with the mental, emotional and physical reminders of its brutality. CPCSSL’s provides counseling sessions to individual, families and or large groups. CPCSSL’s sphere of influence includes issues dealing with trauma, grief and loss, economic pressures, parenting issues, torture, family disagreements, prison outreach, commercial sex workers and school children.

Joseph gbao
Mr. Gbao is a highly motivated and self driven professional with over 9 years of experience in operations management, nonprofit outreach, software development, as well as finance management and human resources in Sierra Leone. Mr. Gbao created CPCSSL as a senior in Fourah Bay college and continues to help, support and advocate for those that are less fortunate. Mr. Gbao's background is much like the victims he represents. He knows first hand what it means not to know where your next meal would come from nor even if he would live to see the next day. After a drastic shift in his family life, Mr. Gbao alongside his four other siblings left with their mom to their grandparents home. Being forced to live in a small one room flat with 6 other people, Mr. Gbao and his siblings took on odd jobs alongside his mother and siblings to further their education and afford what little livelihood they could. Today he works with world leaders and continues to pay it forward.
