Please continue to pray for the capture of 276 girls from Nigeria, they need your prayers and continuous support. They were taken from boarding schools, transported across borders and used for human trafficking, being sold to men for $12 a piece. Their only crime was pursing a Western education.
Today 20 women have been reportedly kidnapped by suspected Boko Haram gunmen at gunpoint from a migratory settlement in North East Nigeria, where the same Islamic militants abducted more than 300 school girls on April 15th 2014.
Boko Haram Islamist which want to inculcate an Islamic state in Nigeria has been taking over villages in northeast, killing and terrorizing civilians and political leaders. This insurgency have widened their operation beyond remote areas of the northeast of the country and have bombed buses and marketplaces killing thousands of people chasing them from homes.
Human trafficking is wrong and the kidnapping, transporting, selling, and sexual exploitation of these girls is a violation of human rights.

WendyAnn Williams is an artist who uses photographs to document people, places, and personal narratives. Her standard medium is the portrait,and works from the conviction that a portrait is a meaningful narrative series of photographs made with respect for the art and the individual. She believes there are multiple truths represented in each image because it provides and confronts constructive realities, even when our eyes are easily deceived, this is depending on the viewer, and the context in which it is represented. WendyAnn was born on the island of Trinidad & Tobago in 1968. She always had a love for the art and was inspired by father at a very young age but never pursued it because the art was too expensive. When migrated to the US, she began her studies at Manhattan Community College and continued at Hunter College, in which she received her BA in Psychology 2013. While studying at CUNY she took some photography classes which reignited her passion for the art. And with her DSLR camera gifted to her by her husband, started a life long dream. Since then she has been taking photographs as a hobby, documenting life. Her long term goal is a commitment to the principle medium, portraits, to a place and to a community. With a desire to work with human rights organizations in creating a series of meaningful portraits documenting displaced and marginalized communities around the world. In hopes that her projects be can be used in communities, exhibited and distributed worldwide.
