Chelsea Market Introduces 1 Million New Yorkers to Ubuntu
posted January 15, 2015
Ubuntu Education Fund is thrilled to be hosting a photography exhibit at Chelsea Market. Ubuntu's Children: The Spirit of South Africa shares captivating images of Port Elizabeth's youth, many of whom work with Ubuntu. All subjects in the exhibit are born into circumstances where access to healthcare, education, employment, and social mobility is limited. Yet, they all spoke of their dreams, choosing to define themselves by their aspirations rather than the countless obstacles that constrain their lives.
This sense of hope is resilient and pervasive; this body of work, photographed by Tim Hans, captures the forward-focused mentality of those living in the townships of Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
Walk through the halls of Chelsea Market with over 1 million other visitors now through February. Witness the many personalities of South African youth captured in the photos, and read their stories. Join us at our opening reception on January 26th for refreshments and remarks from the talented photographer that brings Ubuntu's stories to life. RSVP here.
