Light from Africa in Noordhoek, Cape Town, South Africa | Art Gallery

he Light from Africa Foundation was created to address the on-going crisis of AIDS-orphaned children in the greater Cape Town area. A ceramic studio has been set up to train unemployed people from local townships to become skilled ceramicists. They produce works of art which are sold to generate the funds which are needed to build and maintain homes for AIDS-orphaned children. Each unique piece is designed to hold candles - the Light from Africa symbol - carrying the message of hope around the world.
Six artists from Ocean View and Masiphumelele (two townships in Cape Town) started in January 2004. Another seven joined in September 2004. They are trained by Cathrine Grier and Jane Young, two renowned ceramic artists. The long-term goal is to employ 36 artists.
The art pieces are produced to thr highest possible standard and each is an unique work of art which has been designed and created by the individual artist. Each piece is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
