Poverty and Education 2 is a sculpture by Edwin Abasi Chinyama which is part of the Green Shoots Exhibition at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe.
Edwin’s work  describes  how the nation of  Zimbabwe went  through many challenges  including  rising of  inflation, job shortages hunger striking, due  to  political situations,  meaning to say the changes are occurring each and everyday and there is need for a solution. His work also documents the exploration of his identity, seeking insight to what he will eventually became, and looking for resolutions to unanswerable questions.
This week we are celebrating the World Day of Social Justice, which is going to take place on the 20th of February. The observance of this day aims to contribute to the efforts of the international community in poverty eradication, promotion of full employment and decent work, gender equity and access to social well-being and justice for all.
Chinyama’s work to encourage people to look at how social justice affects poverty eradication. It also focuses on the goal of achieving full employment and support for social integration.
