Charity, Pro Bono and Public Service of TV-Presenter Cherno Jobatey

TV-Presenter Cherno Jobatey never forgot where he came from. When he was a child his family once had to get by on welfare benefits. That’s why Cherno wants to give something back, and share some of his experiences with others.

Cherno Jobatey likes to help whenever he can make it possible. The TV-Presenter is engaged in several Charity activities focusing on families and children. So Cherno Jobatey hosted a fundraiser at the Metropolitan Club in New Yorks affluent Upper East Side so entertaining and successfully he was asked to do it again.

When help is needed…:  In the global effort to eradicate polio Bill Gates donated $255 million. Rotary’s matching effort in response is called Rotary’s $200 Million Challenge, which must be completed by 30 June 2012. Cherno Jobatey is the one face in this campagne. His life told Cherno one lesson: Nobody can make it all alone!
