Take a Chair Ladies is proud to support Cameras for Kibera.
Kibera is East Africa’s largest slum, housing around 1,000,000 residents in appalling conditions. Kenya has a very male dominated society and there are very few training or creative outlets for women. A TACL Member visited Kenya recently and saw first hand the great work that was being done by the charity Carolina for Kibera. www.carolinaforkibera.org. Take a Chair Ladies’s mission is to promote and support female run businesses. It was only natural for the group to support a program designed to empower young women, especially ones that face such enormous challenges. It is amazing what happens when these girls are given a voice and a creative outlet. Here is some of the powerful work done already: http://cfk.unc.edu/2016/04/cheryl-photo-essay/
Carolina for Kibera needs digital cameras (with charger and memory card if possible) to expand their program. They are being collected at Niwot Market, May 11-18. A venue with Longmont Chamber will be confirmed shortly. For more information please call Lucy Tuck Photography: 303 506 0657 or email firstname.lastname@example.org – she is happy to arrange additional or further afield collections. If you don’t have a camera, please consider donating here: https://cfk.unc.edu/action/donate-new/
