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.
