Empowering women after the war - Sierra Leone

Jennifer Kamara
Setting up a business from scratch is a challenge for most, but particularly so for 27 year-old Jennifer Kamara who was abducted from her village by rebel soldiers in Sierra Leone as a teenager, only to later lose her eyesight. In spite of her disability as well as the trauma she suffered during the war, Jennifer has rebuilt her life through the support of a volunteer based at VSO partner, Binkolo Growth Centre.
