On March 15th, In The Shadows : Urban Refugee Children was successfully funded by 160% on Kickstarter. As one of the backers said, this project will provide “a voice for some of the most at-risk children in the world” and it would not have happened without all of you. Thank you.
Cheryl Hamilton from RefugePoint and I will travel to Nairobi beginning of May and work with RefugePoint’s urban protection team in the informal refugee settlements around the city. From there we will post stories about the children we meet on RefugePoint's blog and my blog. I will also post updates (like this one) to you through Kickstarter with links to these reports from the field.
We look forward to launching the exhibit in Boston as well as on-line at www.refugepoint.org on June 20th in honor of World Refugee Day. A preview event is scheduled for June 19th at a location in Boston, to be announced. If you are in the area, we hope you will attend. The exhibit will also return to The Salt Institute in the beginning of 2014 for those of you who attended the launch party in Portland, Maine. We will send more details on all of this as it gets closer.
Thank you again for your support.
Stay tuned !
