Amazing Africa: Face to face

We have had a wonderful response from ONE members sending in their incredible pictures from Africa this week. ONE member Anna Marshall captured some incredible photos on her trip to Cote d’Ivoire in 2008. Katherine Salerno shared her pictures from Kenya and Malawi. And Mariana Rosa sent in a touching photo that she took while in Niassa, Mozambique. Enjoy!
