My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for drawchange Inc, Atlanta, GA, USA
Working with drawchange has been a life-changing experience for me. This organization has touched my life and heart in ways that can only truly be understood through working with the wonderful staff, volunteers, families, and children who make up the drawchange community.
I found drawchange through a Google search after teaching children art but wanting to go deeper with the meaning behind what I was doing. I knew art was more than just a fun activity to do for children -- I saw it as a tool for children to express, heal and grow in a way that didn't require using words.
The positive impact I've seen on the countless children I've connected with over the years through drawchange has been astonishing. From working at Atlanta homeless shelters to going on the drawchange Ethiopia trip twice to establish a lasting program to the impoverished children there, I've seen children open up and see more possibilities for their lives. I've seen children who were struggling to express their emotions become more emotionally-regulated and kind to themselves and those around them. I've seen children blossom in so many ways through the thoughtful curriculum drawchange provides to them -- especially if the child consistently joins sessions over time.
I HIGHLY recommend volunteering, donating, and getting involved with drawchange. This organization is making big moves and causing immense positive change for children in poverty, which ripples out to create positive change in the family, the community, the city, the state, the nation, the world.
Thank you, drawchange!!!
