Selita's charity is Shine on Sierra Leone
Sierra Leone had suffered a 10-year civil war prior to Selita's first visit to the country for a photo shoot. While she was there, Selita learned that one in eight women in Sierra Leone die in childbirth and the country is leading in child mortality rates. Despite these hardships, Selita was quite taken with the country and the women and children who live there. Shine on Sierra Leone is an organization that sets out to help the women and children of Sierra Leone by providing sustainable education, healthcare, micro-loans, computer literacy and environmentally sustainable development. The organization is committed to helping the women and children of Sierra Leone to create stability in their lives and rebuild a hope for the future in the wake of devastating circumstances. If Selita wins "The Celebrity Apprentice," she plans on building a female health clinic, which would allow for doctors and nurses to go out in the villages to help the women of Sierra Leone.
