Review for Drawchange Inc, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I traveled to Costa Rica with a team of DrawChange volunteers. Our leader, Jennie Lobato, was amazing. She organized the entire trip and has an excellent relationship with the staff at the school where we worked with the children. There were 10 volunteers who participated and the teamwork was incredible...no other group of mostly strangers could possibly be as effective. We all realized that this effort was for the children and that was our only agenda. It was good to hear Jennie say that in this, her fourth year, she sees hope on the faces of the children that they can rise up from their impoverished beginnings and create whatever they want in their lives. It was a pleasure and an honor to be on this DrawChange trip. I look forward to next year.

Review for Drawchange Inc, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a supporter of DrawChange through financial sponsorship of a child in Costa Rica. Jeenie Lobato, the founder of DrawChange is passionate about her work and loves all the children she helps. She is tireless in her work, as the only full time staff member. I do not know how she juggles all the balls she has in motion! Jeenie takes art to children in impoverished communities in Atlanta and Costa Rica and plans to start a program in Ethiopia next year. Her belief is that by learning to create through art that these children can learn that they have the power break out of their circumstances and change their lives for the better. They can create whatever they put their mind to do. I applaud her and her efforts and am happy to play a small part in her mission.
