In the words of Nelson Mandela, "Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world."
I had a great opportunity to support a good cause by giving an in-kind donation to Teach With Africa, photographing their 8th Annual fundraising Gala at the St Regis Hotel in San Francisco. Teach With Africa is a non-profit organization empowering students and teachers by bringing educators to Africa to teach and learn. They support academic programs, sustainability efforts and social entrepreneurship initiatives by placing highly qualified educators in underserved schools in South Africa.
The gala was an impressive event to say the least, the creativity and hard work of many individuals was clearly evident. From an exciting fund-raising auction to the talented Pacific Boychoir Academy, the Teach With Africa team delivered a spectacular event.
I wish all the best to Teach With Africa and their educational programs in Africa!
