What Would You Buy with $50?

As you can see in this thoroughly touching video (after the jump), children from both rural and urban areas of the country were posed the simple question of what they would buy with $50.

"What would you buy with $50?" is an online exhibition featuring works of art by 163 Ugandan children. As you can see in this thoroughly touching video (after the jump), children from both rural and urban areas of the country were posed the simple question of what they would buy with $50. Their answers come in the form of drawings, and they speak to both the hopes and daily struggles the children face. They also happen to be incredibly cute.

My favorite part of the project—created by Jiashan Wu, a New York based artist and designer, and Joyce Meng, the founding CEO of the education-related nonprofit Givology—is that you can actually buy the children's art. Each drawing costs $50, and proceeds go to the Circle of Peace School.

Check out the full gallery of drawings here.
