Foday Sillah is a Sierra Leonean poet, writer and filmmaker based in the capital Freetown where he was born and raised. Unable to complete his university education due to lack of funding, he needed up living on the streets for several years before joining WAYout, an organisation providing free arts education for disadvantaged youth. He is currently being trained in creative writing and filmmaking.
Foday completed Level 3 of facilitation skill-sharing with Music Action International and is now one of our local facilitators providing regular sessions for female and male prisioners.
