The Sheldon Art Galleries funded and sent five cameras along with a mission team to Malema, Mozambique in March 2020. The mission team worked with the youth choir from the Malema evangelical station of the United Methodist Church, who produced the photography included in this exhibit. The team was also able to fund the making of a music video featuring the youth choir, to be shown in the exhibit as well. The prints in the exhibit will be available for sale.

Proceeds will be sent to the Youth Choir in Malema to help them continue their musical ministry and will help fund The Sheldon’s education programs. The Sheldon thanks the youth choir members and Pastor José Paulo Vilanculos for their time and effort with this project. The mission team members are part of The Gathering UMC, a local church which funds the drilling of freshwater wells in Mozambique and has also funded the building of a primary school in Malema.
