Review for Artists Striving To End Poverty Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had a tremendously valuable experience with ASTEP...and I know that the children of Shanti Bhavan School in India (to which teaching artists are sent by ASTEP) also benefit from interaction with the many generous artists who give of their time and talents.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were... dedicated to lifting children out of their dire situations through excellent education. I was continuously inspired by the tireless efforts!

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

...literally change the course of thousands upon thousands- one educated child at a time. And in so doing- the world will have a profound shift.

Ways to make it better...

I had had MORE time to give to the school! ;)

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

FUNDING. And, to some degree, public awareness of how much wonderful work they are doing and have done.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
