For AYM, ecotourism development for Moselleh Beach brings  people of Sierra Leone much-needed sustainable income, and opportunity to show off the wonders of the country. AYM is committed to the development of African youth and their development in the tourism sector.  Moselleh Beach is the first attraction for ecotourism in Sierra Leone that AYM established.
