BENEFITING: RACHELS NETWORK INC
Art Force Africa, a project under the fiscal sponsorship of Rachel's Network, Inc is in need of your support!
African children are naturally artistic. They dance, sing, play drums, draw, and invent toys just for fun. The organizing ArtForceAfrica team, comprised of American, French, German, Brazilian, and Beninese members recognizes the need in West-Africa for arts education. The team believes that these talents should be harvested to encourage creative and cognitive development in children, thus creating new generations of artists who can compete in the global music market and leaders who can think creatively to find new solutions to old problems.
In order to create a project that would respond to the need for arts education, ArtForceAfrica in collaboration with the people of Ouidah, Benin founded The International Center of Art and Music (CIAMO), which opened October of 2010.
ArtForce Africa needs your help! Our yearly budget for the project is $100,000. Please consider donating to have a possitive effect on the lives of hundreds of children in Benin!
