Write on Africa
« on: July 03, 2010, 09:39:14 AM »
I came across http://www.writeonafrica.org/ last night and thought it was completely awesome. It's a non-profit organization that employs artists and volunteers to travel the country and paint creches. they are based out of Cape Town, South Africa and I think so far their projects have remained in South Africa. Their philosophy is,
"The idea that everyone forgets how to fly as as they grow up. Everyone is creative and everyone is an artist therefore through creative projects, we want to inspire and affect the heart so people can feel uplifted and empowered to go and make a difference in their community."

Anyway, I think it's really neat, and their results are gorgeous.

EDIT: I forgot to add that I contacted them about me helping out when I'm in Cape Town studying next spring and they're all like, We would be happy to have you!
