When we started out this journey, we committed to executing Art For A Cause in 2 schools every 2 months, and within one yar, we have been able to complete 11 schools within Nigeria, spending time and distributing merchandise to over 6,000 kids. We also had the opportunity to work with a school in Sri Lanka which was on the verge of being shut down, and needed our support to inspire and motivate the kids to stay resilient through the schools challenges.
Throughout our journey we have met various kids who remind us of our WHY - why we are doing this. Some of the kids have shown great promise, as we have provided them an avenue to express themselves through art.
Tutors have been amazed what this process has uncovered about the children under their care, simply by getting adult artists to create and display artwork amidst children. Because of how impressionable their minds are, what this does is to inspire them to create better art and better express themselves. They learn about the dynamics of a mentor and mentee at such an early age.
