Teaneck, NJ, school teacher and photographer, Dena Florczyk, is using her photography to help raise awareness of the challenges facing school children in Nigeria. Florczyk founded The Nigerian School Project (http://nigerianschoolproject.org/) back in 2004. The non-profit educational organisation seeks to support communities in developing successful schools by providing support, supplies and infrastructure.
She recently staged a photography exhibit entitled, “No Longer Afraid to Dream,” at the Stable Gallery in Ridgewood, NJ with proceeds from the sale of prints going to organisation. This was just part of the on-going fund-raising the organisation has done, which has resulted in the building of a primary school, a middle school and a library as well as the provision of everything from everything from textbooks to lab stools.
