SPOTTED: Solanage Knowles and Son



Solange and her son Juelz were spotted over the weekend in Brooklyn attending a partnership party for 14 Plus Foundation which is an initiative to promote literacy in Africa among children and young adults. Solange and Juelz were two of many who have partnered with the foundation.




That's right, Solo, start him out right early!!

WHY 14+? 
Two-thirds of the population of Africa consists of children and young adults, yet the literacy rate for Africans over the age of 14 is reported to be as low as 60%. The goal of 14+ Foundation is to improve this figure through arts based educational projects and programs. 
The “+” sign represents an additive effect and positive value. 
While 14+ has numerous references for us - most importantly,14+ represents our commitment to go above and beyond to positively impact children's lives to reach their full potential through education.
 
WE BELIEVE IN: 
+ Empowering children through education+ Volunteerism – we are a dedicated volunteer effort with   shared interests working toward a common goal+ Meaningful engagement with the communities we serve+ The importance of arts-based education+ Impact of quality design to inspire change and engage the   community
