The Vail Daily featured an article on For the Good Period photographer Kate Lapides images from our work in Kenya. The exhibit, titled "A Thousand Smiles: Photographs of For the Good Period In Kenya," is on display at CMC Vail Valley until the end of April, 2017.

EDWARDS — For photojournalist Kate Lapides, sharing positive images of the young African women she has met during the past year and a half has a deeper purpose.

"Much of the documentary imagery depicting Africa focuses on the continent's poverty, conflict and crisis," said Lapides, who coordinates communications and outreach for a Colorado-based humanitarian organization called For the Good Period

EDWARDS — For photojournalist Kate Lapides, sharing positive images of the young African women she has met during the past year and a half has a deeper purpose.

"Much of the documentary imagery depicting Africa focuses on the continent's poverty, conflict and crisis," said Lapides, who coordinates communications and outreach for a Colorado-based humanitarian organization called For the Good Period.

The group is working to expand opportunity to girls in rural Kenya through education.

"My hope is that sharing the smiles and joys of these girls in Kenya will allow viewers to connect with them as individuals, instead of stereotypes," Lapides said.

An opening reception and fireside talk for "A Thousand Smiles: Girls, Pads & Opportunity in Kenya" will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. today at Colorado Mountain College in Edwards. The event is free and open to the public and is being presented by Colorado Mountain College's Women in Philanthropy.
