Fab photo exhibition in Toronto to Support the Right for Education in Uganda
On October 27th, our wonderful friend Karen and her team at the Nzirambi Education Fund will be hosting a photo exhibition at the Pikto Gallery in Toronto’s Distillery District. This special event is to show support for the 85 boys and girls at the Nzirambi Orphans Talent Development Centre in Uganda. This special evening will feature a photo exhibition by Brian Pieters who recently visited the center in Uganda.
Education tends to be a given to most children living in North America and we sometimes forget that not all children in the world are as lucky as. Uganda in particular ranks as, “the 19th worst country in the world for child mortality where 188,000 children die every year before their fifth birthday” (Nzirambi Education Fund, 2011).
The Nzirambi Education Fund is doing some fantastic work and has sponsored several youth in their senior levels of school. To date, the education fund has successfully raised over $20,000 towards scholarships for these children. Join us in this very special evening, view some great photographs, partake in a silent auction where 100 percent of funds raised will go towards children at the Development Centre and look out for great prizes, including a few Le Dolci cupcake decorating classes! Even if you aren’t a winner, don’t fret, Le Dolci will be providing tasty cupcakes at the event.
We hope to see you all at the Pikto Gallery on October 27th to show support for those children at the Nzirambi Orphans Talent Development Centre in Uganda.
