Sierra Leone Rising
Fostering Education, Public Health, Technology & Female Empowerment
After discovering that she was related to African royalty, a ruling Mende family in Sierra Leone and she was considered a mahaloi, Princess Sarah co-founded the non-profit Sierra Leone Rising with her brother Hindo to support education, and the rebuilding of Bumpe High School after the 11 year Blood Diamond war, the organization has now expanded its mission to include female empowerment and public health in the Bumpe Chiefdom of 70,000 with the goal to expand the work throughout the country.
Mask on Africa
Spreading Awareness About Masks to Slow the Spread of COVID-19
MASK ON AFRICA is a campaign to spread awareness and encourage people across the continent to wear masks in order to slow the spread of Coronavirus. It’s been shown that wearing masks when out in public and in social situations can protect the wearer, as well as those around them, from Covid-19. In tandem with thorough hand washing, wearing a cloth mask over your mouth and nose is one of the easiest ways to stay safe and healthy during these times.
Launched by Princess Sarah and her brother Hindo Kposowa in Sierra Leone, MASK ON AFRICA’s goal is to get everyone unified and working together to share this message across the continent. For more information on the campaign and how to get involved, please go to SierraLeoneRising.org.
