Art Meets Education
Art is an endeavor, which enriches life through emotions and stories for each individual. While it is clear that art gives meaning, can it also educate? The organization Art Meets Education intends to do exactly that - children from impoverished backgrounds will be able to finance their own education through means of their own creativity. Here children are given the opportunity to create their own works of art. Their photographs are shown in exhibitions and the proceeds generated from the sales of their art provide the financial means for their education from primary school all the way up to high school graduation. The priority is to provide the tools for the powerless to empower themselves. To give these children the means to finance their own education forges the key to which they can use for a self-determined life, a life without poverty.
