Organisation of African Communities
Ibrahim Kebe
Membership/ Mobilisation Chair

Ibrahim Kebe, Sierra Leonean that moved to Australian in 2006 with the hope of studying politics and international relations, eight years later and he is in his final year of finishing this course.

Knowing firsthand the difficulties of arriving in a foreign country, Ibrahim has dedicated his time voluntarily to welcome new migrants into the country while helping them to establish a new way of life. By doing this Ibrahim has seen the outcomes these families have experienced by intergrading them within the Australian Community and way of living.

Since being in Australia Ibrahim has worked with in many different environments and situations, leading him to become aware of the increasing violence within the African community specifically. Young individuals from all over Africa are facing difficulties being in a foreign country, the way of life is different, families are separated and our culture does not always fit within the perimeters of this new land we call home. This unfortunately leads many youth to act out and lead to an increase of violence. Due to this, Ibrahim is actively working at raising awareness and understanding for people within the community. In 2014 he  won African-Australia champion award.
