Challenge

Finding and purchasing paper and supplies in rural areas of Vietnam is difficult and costly. In order to run a successful program we need to be able to purchase large rolls of paper and art supplies such as paints, brushes, pens at one time in order to save on transport costs of getting the materials out to the countryside.

Solution

Although we use as much recycled materials as we can find for our art projects, we still need clean paper and supplies. We will be able to plan much more in advance, confident that we have the resources in place to have a successful program.

Long-Term Impact

Underprivileged youth who are passionate about art often do not have the opportunity to be educated in the arts outside of school. This project will help us provide the supplies and paper needed for the students to come, take classes, and express themselves in a stress-free environment. By providing our students an avenue for self-expression, we hope to offer them temporary relief from their rigorous school schedules and difficult life situations.
