We recently shared with you a first look at the cover of our founder and CEO, Aminata Conteh-Biger's upcoming book Rising Heart which was due out in May.
Due to the current COVD-19 situation, the decision has been made to push back the release date of the book until the end of September. While this is disappointing news, we want the focus of the next few months to be on everyone keeping safe, looking after themselves and following the Government advice to stay indoors where possible.
We appreciate that many of you may have pre-ordered the book, so we truly appreciate your patience in waiting until September.
Aminata has pledged to donate a portion of the royalties of Rising Heart to the Aminata Maternal Foundation.
You can still pre-order the book. We will share the new release date soon...watch this space!

"I have personally pledged to donate a portion of the royalties of Rising Heart to the Aminata Maternal Foundation. This means that when you buy a copy for yourself - and perhaps another to give to a loved one - you are doing much more than purchasing a book: you are for example, potentially saving a newborn's life, or directly contributing to the foundation's cause, helping us to safely deliver Sierra Leonean babies and to support and empower Sierra Leonean girls and women."
