Whilst Singahini focussed on Child Rights and Kibo made collages about their community, Mgungani got busy making aspirational portraits with pencils, charcoal, paints and pens. At the same time the group thought about what role their education plays in their future and what their motivations are. The portraits produced show a fantastic group of socially conscious and active community members. Between them they will fight corruption, improve health care, and educate and safeguard their communities. Take a look for some more inspiration!
