TACL Supporting Cameras for Kibera-1490

Left Hand Valley Courier-1498Kibera 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/
