Children love to draw what they see: their families, the Playground, their friends at school. They draw what they want to become in the future. A doctor. A lawyer. An architect.
But what about a child who is underprivileged? What if all he/she can see is suffering and lack?
Through art, underprivileged children can begin to make sense of their world and what hurts them. They can tell their story. Best of all, they can imagine a better world for themselves and their families - free of injustice, pain and suffering.
'Redeeming Childhood, Restoring Hope' features original Paintings telling the story of the children of Dignity. The works are done by 21 young artists, aged 8 - 18 years old from 4 different countries (Malaysia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Myanmar - if you are interested!). Beautifully painted on canvas and skateboards, they reflect their hopes and dreams for a future without poverty.
Join us, and enable children to redeem their childhood and give them a hope for a brighter future. All the funds will go back directly to support the education of the children.
We will be selling:
* the paintings
* the Malaysian classic childhood game 'Batu Seremban'
* 2 children's story books "Feelings" and "Our friend, the beetle" written by Petrina Shee (Principal of Dignity) and illustrated by local artist Nuriman Manap.
