Plan International UK presents Brave: The Girls of South Sudan, a photography exhibition by Kate Holt, showing girls’ everyday lives as they survive in the world’s youngest country.
The girls of South Sudan have faced it all. Conflict, violence and hunger. And they are still just teenagers. See their lives in this powerful exhibition with photography by award-winning photographer Kate Holt.
Since independence in July 2011, armed conflict, economic insecurity and chronic underdevelopment in South Sudan has led to one of the world’s greatest humanitarian crises, with over 4 million people displaced and 7 million without enough food to eat. As the girls in this exhibition will tell you, hunger remains a daily challenge. From struggling to breastfeed to not being able to concentrate in school, not having enough to eat affects every part of their lives.
Plan International UK is a global children’s charity. They work to ensure every child has the same chance in life. When disaster strikes, they are there, on the ground helping those in need. In South Sudan, Plan International UK and the Disasters Emergency Committee have been providing lifesaving seeds and tools so communities can grow their own crops and provide for their families.
