Art is an endeavor, which enriches life through emotions and stories for each individual. While it is clear that art gives meaning, can it, however, also educate?
The organization Art Meets Education intends to do exactly that - children from impoverished backgrounds will be able to finance their own education through means of their own creativity.
Children are honest and terrific artists. They possess imaginative and experimental minds unbounded by rational adult thought. This naive creativity is what enables them to create incredible works of art, unharmed by society’s values, rules and structures.
What AME does
Art Meets Education is an organization, which educates through photography. Here, children from financially disadvantaged backgrounds are given the opportunity to create their own works of art. The photographs that they create are placed in exhibitions and the proceeds generated from the sales of their art will provide the financial means for their formal education from primary school all the way up high school graduation. Our priority is to provide the tools for the powerless to empower themselves. To give these children the means to finance their own education forges the key to which they can use for a self-determined life, a life without poverty.
How can I help?
Art Meets Education e.V. is a non-profit organization whose goal is funding the education of children 100% through the proceeds of their sold photographs. In order to achieve this, we rely on donations, which serve to cover the overhead costs of the organization. This includes purchasing the photo equipment, printing and framing the photographs, as well as exhibition expenses. Thus, all donations go towards sustaining the organization, which in turn guarantees that all proceeds from the sold photographs go towards the funding of the children's education. If you like more information concerning the investments of your donation, please feel free to contact us at anytime.
