According to Borges, “The empowerment of women is such an important piece of addressing global poverty and global security. It is not only the quickest way to stop the spread of AIDS; it is the quickest way to put a cap on population pressures.”

“We are very pleased with this first step that we’ve taken together, and hope that it is the first of many steps,” explains Sledzieski.

Such steps seem to typify the social change and innovation necessary in the developing world, by creating a global platform shepherded by the rawest form of human consciousness: art.
