Review for Childrens Art Village, Inc., Santa Monica, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Childrens Art Village is an inspiring and well-structured organization from which my non-profit has learned a great deal. As a teaching artist, I have worked all over the globe with at-risk and orphaned youth, teaching filmmaking and acting. Mai's commitment to and execution of a sustainable programming model is like no other I have seen in this work. Children's Art Village not only empowers the children they work with, but also the entire volunteer body, staff, and surrounding village. The impact of their work has an unending ripple effect. Mai is both a business woman and a spiritual artist. She has laid a solid foundation, on which art, healing, and change may flourish.

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

Mai makes things work for everyone. With a sensitivity to many cultures and the needs of the children, she amazes me with her grounded, powerful, effective decision making.

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

Give children all over the world an access to express themselves through music and art!
