Unbound Visual Arts (UVA), the newest UNESCO/UNITWIN Network Affiliate, is proud to announce an new photography exhibit on the SEGA (Secondary Education for Girls' Advancement) students of Tanzania. The event will be co-sponsored by UVA, Nurturing Minds Northeast Chapter, and the West Suburban YMCA in Newton, MA. Owing to popular acclaim, this is now a "traveling" UVA exhibition that was previously shared during Women's History Month (March 2014) in Brighton, MA.

The exhibit features the work of award-winning photographer Warren Zelman, who portrays and supports the academic and social life of the girls at the SEGA school. SEGA is a remarkable initiative of Nurturing Minds, a nonprofit organization that focuses on the crucial issue of girls' education in Tanzania. This tallies with UNESCO's Global Priorities of promoting gender equality, and Africa.
