WAYout is an innovative, International, youth led charity using digital media, music and drama to explore issues and tell stories. We work in conflict affected countries with disadvantaged young people. User led projects heal, educate and empower.

Founded 2008

  • Mission statement

    Our vision is for young people from deprived and disadvantaged communities across the world to have access to and take part in music, film, the arts and media, providing access to facilities, resources and training to allow young people to express themselves through creativity, and supporting them into further education and training. The charity will be working initially, but not solely, on projects in Sierra Leone, and will be looking at opportunities to work in deprived communities in the UK and other countries.

    Working in some of the most deprived areas and poorest countries in the world we aim to:
    manage, promote and assist the arts and arts projects for the benefit of the local and general communities; disadvantaged young people and communities across the world.
    - develop and sustain community education and creative development programmes tailored to individuals’ and communities’ needs
    - provide recreational, educational and production facilities and resources
    - enhance individuals’ economic welfare and wellbeing through empowering them to earn through their art
    - develop long lasting relationships with partner organisations for the benefit of the projects, young people, and the general community
    - relieve hardship by providing subsidies to access arts-based projects
    - capacity build grassroots projects and organisations to ensure long term sustainability of programme
