‘All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up’
Star for Life offers a set of motivational programs and services that inspire young people to value learning, acquire the knowledge and skills they need for productive work, and lead healthy lives free from AIDS. Within their Art and Culture program, the organization is collaborating with South-African primary schools in order to teach about art, music, theatre and dance – and to improve children’s confidence and outlook on life through creativity. With an exchange of paintings, music and stories, Star for life makes it possible for Swedish and South-African children to co-create art together and to learn from one another. A true creative dialogue between South-African and Swedish Artwork Heroes!
Because I am a Girl by Plan aims to support millions of girls to get the education, skills and support they need to transform their lives and the world around them. Child marriage and early motherhood is a prevalent problem in Bangladesh. Girls are betrothed to men they have never met from as early as two years old and, thereafter, get pregnant at the onset of menstruation. There are numerous reasons cited for early marriages, including girls being a financial burden to their (already poor) family; younger girls require a lower dowry payment and marrying to prevent girls from being sexually harassed.
We believe in the right for young girls to get an education and to escape child marriage. If you do too, please support Plan Sverige by purchasing a unique artwork. If you would like to know more about Plan and how to support the organization.
