Social capital is the idea that the ties that bind us together have a value in themselves. The other main types of capital are physical capital – such as machines and roads, and human capital – such as knowledge and skills.

TO BE OR TO HAVE? We built a bridge by putting 2 extremes that at first glance do not belong together into context. When building a bridge two far extremes are what give it balance and make it stand and sustain. It is about creating an awareness by inviting people into each other’s different realities. We are all privileged in one way or the other; be it in terms of materialistic goods or intangible assets, such as spirit, soul, joy and happiness. The action is part of an awareness campaign that started in LION BASE in Freetown and was extended all the way to Berlin and now Paris Who is rich and who is poor is all a matter of perspective. Rich in material possessions - poor in spirit or - poor in a material sense yet rich in spirit or ideally a balance of both. Is it necessary for one to exclude the other? Are poor people closer to God because their spirit and energy is not projected into outer objects? Observing an image will raise question and force people to search for answers. In the process they think - re-think!
