ARTS EDUCATION INTERNATIONAL
January 31, 2011

I have been a volunteer with AEI since 2007, and have had the great pleasure of seeing the success of AEI programs in Sierra Leone firsthand. The director and on-site administrators are 100% committed to providing amazing arts outreach programs for the kids who need it most. I have personally met dozens of war-afflicted teens whose first educational and career opportunities were provided by AEI. It is truly remarkable to witness the transformation of children who thought they had lost all hope, find so much joy and take so much pride in the new directions of their lives.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Sierra Leone.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase the operating budget, enabling AEI to provide these wonderful programs for many more orphaned abandoned children.
