Future Presidents

The solidarity art of Helpo embraces 37 intervention centers in Mozambique and helps 16.000 children and young people to study in preschool, primary school, educational play centers, high school (through scholarships) and in a provincial daycare center. Between the 16th and the 28th of February 2018, two Portuguese – a photographer and a writer – visited several school communities, distributed by the provinces of Cabo Delgado and Nampula, in the north of Mozambique, to discover what local students aim to be and do once they grow up.

The project was named “Future Presidents” presuming that those with continuous access to studies can become whatever they wish, even President of the Republic. After the fieldwork, which involved more than 60 interviews, we are proud to present you this exhibition, with 20 futures and a few stories.
