New York photo exhibition celebrates FAWE’s work


Monday, 7 January 2013

A photo exhibition celebrating FAWE’s work will open in New York, USA, on 20 January 2013.

FAWE photo exhibitions - Faces of Africa PosterEntitled ‘Faces of Africa – Celebrating the work of FAWE’, the series of approximately 30 photos from Ethiopia, Ghana, Liberia, Mali and Uganda will be on display at the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church Gallery until 20 March 2013.

The event has been organised by FAWE’s US affiliate, Friends of FAWE. It seeks to share FAWE’s work with a US audience and highlight the human dimension of these efforts.

The exhibition portrays African girls and women whose lives have been transformed by FAWE’s work over the years.

It features young girls from several countries whom FAWE has helped to overcome severe poverty through financial and other means so they can continue with their schooling and improve their lives.

The exhibition shows young women from conflict-affected zones in Liberia who have been trained with marketable skills through FAWE’s technical and vocational skills project so they can create or find work and be independent.

It also features mothers in rural parts of Mali who have gained leadership skills and community respect through FAWE’s mothers’ clubs and now lead efforts to get village girls into school and keep them there.

Sponsored by the church’s Arts and Our Faith Committee, the exhibition features the work of US-based photographer Nancy Wong who has carried out specially commissioned photography work for FAWE.
