Our Team

Deanna Wallace is the founder of All As One, and the worldwide Executive Director. She has been involved in the field of international child welfare for 30 years, and has worked, lived and traveled extensively in several African countries. She currently divides her time between Sierra Leone and the US. Deanna is the mother of 12 children – two by birth, and ten by adoption from Korea, India, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone and the US.

Steven Amara is the Country Director and co-founder of All As One's work in Sierra Leone , which began in 2000. He coordinates all facets of our work in Sierra Leone. Each day, Steven leads a team of 40 Sierra Leoneans, who feed, clothe and shelter up to 85 babies and children. Steven previously worked with Doctors Without Borders (MSF Belgium) during the Sierra Leone civil war, and was one of the people in charge of their displaced camps in Bo, Sierra Leone. He has also worked with other non-governmental organizations in Sierra Leone.

In Sierra Leone, All As One employs only Sierra Leone nationals – approximately 40. In our supporting offices outside Sierra Leone, most of our staff serve as volunteers.
