On May 12, 2016, YRB attended a preview of photographic works for a new exhibition entitled “For The Innocent & Voiceless” in the Meatpacking District in New York City,
Photographer, Dah Wee collaborated with some of the world’s most famous subjects from Madonna and Naomi Campbell.
The groundbreaking exhibit highlighted the importance of giving a voice to those without one.
Limited edition photographs will be sold alongside editions of Jack, a poster size magazine and collectible piece of art centered on pop culture and entertainment .
“Many Hopes believes that local children will defeat the poverty and injustice that charity by itself cannot, if we stand with them now. So we don’t just build homes and schools for girls and boys in Kenya, but we ask, ’What do children need now in order to be the adults who can do extraordinary things for justice in three decades?’” said Thomas Keown, co-founder of Many Hopes.
Many Hopes is a non-profit organization that rescues children from poverty, corruption and abuse in Kenya, then advocates for them in court and educates them in order to build future networks of influencers who will break the cycle of injustice. The charity will hold its annual fundraiser gala Discover Many Hopes on May 23 in New York, which will be co-hosted by supermodel Karen Elson
The evening event will take place at 180 Maiden Lane, and will bring together 500 influencers to build a school for 900 boys and girls in Kenya. 100% of the proceeds will go toward the building.
