A Portrait of Africa 

   A Portrait of Africa

- the first exhibition in the   CROSSROADS-ET-AL venture has launched !!

 This is  a fundraising initiative aiming to empower through a lens . 

Proceeds from the two exhibits will go back into Kenya , specifically to the  'Futures in the Wild' charity which focuses on educational opportunities for children, in the Mara region .

I am pleased to say that the exhibitions were a huge success and the message behind Crossroads et al is now taking its first big steps out on its own in the public eye .

Of course you can still purchase prints or donate to this fundraising initiative with all the details below .

When i travelled to Africa , last year, the amazing people at Iconic Africa , in particular Julia Fryer , expressed to me how important travel like mine is to the conservancies in Kenya and Botswana . "we make a massive difference to educating and empowering young women in the region".

I personally witnessed with significant sadness what a lack of choice means . But they can have choices ! 

In the words of Lippa Wood , the founder of 'Futures in the wild' these girls are now graduating from the Emarti school. In 2011 only a few girls joined and now over 50% of the 300 plus students are girls .

 

Dorms are being built so that the kids don't have to travel miles to and from school with the dangers that this ,at times, holds for the children . 

 

The proceeds from the crossroads et al exhibition  will hopefully offer something meaningful to these kids. In specific terms the aim is to provide lunch for the kids of the Emarti school for one year !

We're approximately 3/4 of the way to achieving our target !

The  final exhibition in this series was held at the Corner Gallery, in Stanmore .

We re now in a position to donate the proceeds back to the Futures in the Wild charity .

Of course any sales after theses events will also be directed to the charity
