5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Through video, art installations, sound and photographs, the viewer will be transported to Rabuor Village, Western Kenya. You will come to know Caxton, age 15, head of household, one of 14 million orphans in Africa who have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS. You will be uplifted by the courage and determination of the people of Rabuor as they struggle to survive and overcome poverty and the devastation of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa. You will learn that you can make a difference in the life of one orphan, one mother, and one village.

Rabuor Village Project is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization based in Seattle. RVP was founded by Loyce Mbewa to support the work of the Rabuor Women's Group who are currently feeding 150 aids orphans in the nursery school they built to house 50 children. The mission of Rabuor Village Project is to empower the people of Rabuor Village to develop sustainable, community based solutions to overcome the challenges of poverty and HIV/AIDS.

Amanda Koster is an internationally acclaimed photographer who has made it her mission to document some of the world's most compelling issues. Aids is Knocking has been accepted as a Sedrat Arts sponsored project and Amanda's work will be featured as the cover project of the upcoming Sedrat Arts 2006

Calendar. A portion of the proceeds from Sedrat Arts Calendar sales will benefit AIDS IS KNOCKING. Amanda has won several international awards, including first place photo essay, from the Society of Professional Journalists. Amanda is known to Seattleites for her prize winning exhibit This is Beautiful/bodyBODY.

VIVEZA Art Gallery (2604 Western Ave., Seattle) has kindly donated their space to support the work of Rabuor Village Project.
