I have been a donor of the Children's Art Village since its inception. I admire the vision that the Children' Art Village has executed in Ghana through the sustainable program that is now in existence. I continue to marvel at the dynamic energy that has continued to push this vision forward. I am especially impressed with the Executive Director and her ability to motivate those around her to be of service.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

through pictures, videos and the endless amount of artwork that is produced from the children.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the vision is about helping those children who most especially require attention. The Children's Art Village has given these children a vehicle to utilize in order to grow in the awareness of themselves.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

incredibly intelligent, enthusiastic, practical, and extremely down to earch. They all have bought into the vision of helping children through the expressive mediums of art and music.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

be an international powerhouse and be able to expand farther to help hundreds of thousands of children.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
