Benefit Auction for L.E.A.D Uganda 2 new collages and prints by Shepard Fairey

On November 12 2 new collages created by Shepard Fairey will be auctioned off to benefit L.E.A.D. Uganda

LEAD Uganda is an educational leadership initiative for children affected by AIDS, war, and poverty.

We locate children living on the edges of society – AIDS orphans, former child soldiers, child laborers – and mold them into leaders. Our goal is to give Africans the skills to help solve their own problems and become equal partners in a world of democracy and prosperity.

We give them the world class, 21st century skills necessary to lead Africa into the future.

Our student-members attend the very best primary and secondary schools,then go to university. Our scholars attend top, elite schools — where cabinet ministers send their children.

We furnish them with everything they need to succeed: school fees, books and supplies, clothing, and food. During school breaks, our students receive coaching in English, math, and science. They attend vacation workshops in leadership, web design, writing, video, and photography.

They will also be selling prints as well of the collages, each with an edition of 450. The collages were created from original photographs by Steve Shames. The original photos will be auctioned as well.
