Review for Art Aids Art, Altadena, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered with Art Aids Art when I was studying abroad in South Africa four years ago, and I still think often about the vibrant community center in Cape Town and the opportunities that Art Aids Art provided to South African women and their families, offering them an income independent from their husbands and a place to safely work and socialize with their friends. Art Aids Art not only provides the means for great community cohesion, but it offers the chance for outsiders to learn about a culture that is so rich, artistically and historically, but rarely receives the attention it deserves.

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

Learning about South African culture and supporting local artists.

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

Extremely motivated, enthusiastic, creative and gracious.
