Bloom Where Planted

Pasadena, CA, U.S.A.

Bloom Where Planted is a non-profit Public Charity for the benefit of the education of children in Africa — Kenya and Rwanda, specifically.

Areas of Expertise

Mary McNeill Fry, President of 'Bloom Where Planted' and proprietor of Rose Tree Cottage, British import retail establishment and tearoom in Pasadena, California. As a long time photography enthusiast and tour leader, her first trip to Africa in 2002 led to a devotion to that intoxicating continent — it's landscape, animals and people, especially the children. A non-profit charity was formed as a way to educate children of Kenya and Rwanda and help them "Bloom where they are Planted".

Professional Affiliations

In that capacity, he edited photographs taken by the children, which appears in book form as "Pupil Power".
