Kenema Loves... The Holy Rosary Secondary School in Kenema Sierra Leone

As you must be aware we at Kenema & Co are very passionate about support our sisters in Africa.  Managing Director, Tamu's trip to Sierra Leone in October 2010 initiated the first phase of our charitable work!  In the Summer we co-organised AskYouGirl's OFF THE RADAR event and used the door fee to raise money to provide school scholarships for two girls in Kenema, Sierra Leone...here are some photos...
