Balancing Act by The Little People Project Benefits South African Kids Affected by HIV/AIDS

Balancing Act

Artist and photographer Slinkachu of The Little People Project, stacked pills on a tiny female figurine for Balancing Act, an art installation left last year in the Khayelitsha township of Cape Town, South Africa. On his blog, Slinkachu explains that an estimated 16% of Khayelitsha’s population “experiences many problems such as poverty, crime and a high rate of HIV infection” and that “life can be tough, especially for children.” Prints will be available of Balancing Act at Slinkachu’s upcoming shows and a percentage of the proceeds go to Baphumelele, a “community project in Khayelitsha that aims to help local children” affected by HIV/AIDS. More information can be found at his blog.

…the money will be used in projects that help children who have been affected by HIV/AIDS – Clemens Cares For Kids which helps children suffering from HIV/AIDS and Baphumelele Children’s Home which looks after children who have been orphaned or abandoned.
