Review for ARTS EDUCATION INTERNATIONAL, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been working with AEI for 4 years at both the Peace and Love orphanage and the Teshie orphanage in Ghana. Amongst other arts, I teach dance, batik, bead-making and African history. From my experience, AEI has implemented programs that have had a very positive impact on the children at these orphanages. Through sponsorship of arts programs, AEI has helped the students to learn sustainable livelihood skills and to express themselves through visual art, crafts such as basket-weaving, dance and music such as drumming and flute. I have seen the positive effects of these programs and think that AEI is doing a great job.

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

that AEI employs local artists and teachers for their workshops, exposing indigenous knowledge and arts to the next generation.
