ARTS EDUCATION INTERNATIONAL
September 29, 2011

As the Executive Director of AEI, I can speak to the unmatched dedication of the artistic instructors on the ground in Ghana and Sierra Leone. Since I founded AEI, one of the most important principles of our work has been to cultivate relationships between the children we serve and the bearers of artistic tradition within their own communities. Today I can proudly say that we are fostering these mentorship relationships daily, and that the artists instructing the children we serve are not only singularly talented, but compassionate and caring role models in communities with conflicted histories. Our artists help orphaned and abandoned children to confront trauma on their own terms, and to become leaders in their own communities. I simply can’t say enough and am grateful for their hard work and dedication each day.

The Great!
