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 MarketUbuntu'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.

Dear Mr. Lief, I am a teacher at MS/HS 368 In-Tech Academy. We are organizing student to participate in the AIDS WALK 2015 on May 17th. I was wondering if your organization will be part of the walk this year. If so, we will be happy to support Ubuntu Education Fund and carry your banner. Please let me know.

What a gorgeous exhibit! Thank you for inviting us to get a glimpse of the lives of youth in Port Elizabeth. It forced me to slow down, admire the images of the bright souls, and then delve further and read about their stories... I am going to go back a few more times to enjoy this. ALL VISITORS TO CHELSEA MARKET - SLOW DOWN TO ENJOY THIS EXHIBIT AND SEE HOW YOU CAN IMPACT THE WORLD...
