This photo was taken in the main squareof a town in Ukraine on May 15th, 2012. The Chain of Knowledge was the culmination of an HIV Awareness project I did with the pupils of my school. Participants of the project went into the main square of our oblast (regional) center and approached different people to share what they learned through at HIV Awareness Project throughout the semester.
Then they explained that knowledge is like a chain; every little fact that we know is a link in our understanding of a concept. They encouraged people to add their own links to the town's knowledge of HIV-- to write something the project participants shared with them on a slip of red paper, fold it into a ribbon, and attach it to the Chain of Knowledge. The project participants then encouraged people to share what they had learned with others-- after all, sharing knowledge is the only way to make the chain bigger.
