Child learning under a street lamp

In 2021 someone took a photograph of a child trying to learn under a street lamp in Africa.

It was taken in an area of Kenya where there was no School of Hope. In many ways this scene encapsulates exactly why ChallengeAid does what it does in creating Schools of Hope to enable aspiring young pupils to be able to achieve through education and escape from their life of poverty.

The photograph was seen by an artist and etcher Eurfryn Lewis, who decided that he wanted to get involved with ChallengeAid and set about representing that photograph as an oil painting and an etching.

We created a limited edition of 100 prints of the painting and 10 prints of the etching some of which were auctioned at some of our marquee events. Some of the signed prints of the painting are still available at £75 and the 10 copies of the etching at £125 all signed by founder Iestyn Thomas with this words “This is why ChallengeAid does what it does”.

If you wish to order one then please email us at info@challengeaid.org
