Art For A Cause
Inspiring Children And Communities Through Art
Art For a Cause is a community development project founded by Socially Africa. It is a platform to inspire and educate Children using Art as our medium of Communication. Every two months, together with a team of artists and volunteers, we visit two public schools and
paint educational artwork on their walls. In
addition, we spend time with the kids, Conduct a spelling bee, Teach the importance of Nutrition and Exercise, as well as give out merchandise, books, bags, crayons and Drawing books to the
Even though our primary focus is public schools at the moment, we also plan to work with community centers and places that would like to partner with us to create inspiring artwork on their walls.
While we understand that most community development project geared towards kids are primarily based on Literature (Reading), and Food Distribution, we believe that Art is a very powerful medium to capture their minds and hearts, and keep them inspired throughout their time in school. We've seen this through our project, as one of the kids recently sent us a Comic book that he drew including educational text. Through this project, we believe that we can start to make an impact in the schools, and also create specific projects geared towards raising funds for their other needs. .
Since the inception of Art for a cause in 2016, we have had 9 editions in 11 schools. 10 schools in Nigeria and 1 in Sri Lanka.
Impact Reach for the past one year: 11 schools, 6000+ children.
It’s been a very humbling and exciting journey, being able to inspire Nigeria’s future - Our Kids, through Art. The visual experience at these schools aren’t much to write home about. But we are changing that. While painting a wall may seem trivial, we have found that it gets the kids excited to attend school every day, knowing that there’s a bigger picture, and a world that cares about them.
