Oumou Cherif is the CEO and Founder of Children Education Alliance, a platform dedicated to uplift underserved African children in pursuit of quality education. The Guinean-native, Boston-based youth advocate Oumou holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Management, Entrepreneurship, and Marketing, as well as a Master of Public Administration with a concentration in Nonprofit Management.
Throughout the years, Oumou has dedicated her life to activism. Her involvement includes partnerships with the Student Immigrant Movement, Brazilian Immigrant Center and Progressive Organization for the Women of Africa. With a strong background in community outreach and advocacy, Oumou recently joined the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Community Engagement Division with a fervor to diverse communities of Massachusetts through educational trainings that aims at teaching residents their rights, and establish a bridge between citizens and the Attorney General's office, so that all residents have access to AGO’s resources, services, and educational materials. A firm believer in education, Oumou’s commitment is mostly centered on providing essential learning tools to school-aged children in Guinea, Kindia, whom she refers to as “future leaders.”

Oumou created Children Education Alliance, Inc. (CEA), a 501c3 nonprofit organization that assists underprivileged African children in pursuit of quality education by providing notebooks and pencils in primary schools. Since the creation of CEA in early 2012, the organization has impacted more than 4000 lives through the provision of basic learning tools such as notebooks and pencils, something so simple, but a necessity. CEA's work has been featured on Boston WEBN local TV series "Every Women Has a Story" and Boston's daily newspaper "The Bay State Banner." In 2014, Oumou received the African Youth Excellence award in Public Service Award in recognition of her commitment to improving the lives of underserved African children. She has also received a Massachusetts State Citation from Massachusetts State Representative, Dan Donahue, and Senator Michael Moore.

Recently, Oumou was amongst 50 black women recognized by “I Am African & I Can,” which celebrates courageous and accomplished black women internationally.

AFRIFAMUACAA is excited to celebrate such an accomplished woman. Looking at all the things she and her organization have done, we say congratulations and we look forward to celebrating you.
