Young Illustrators need art materials!

Corazon Grande

A little visit to "Corazon Grande" an orphanage in amazing Bolivia, where I was so lucky to volunteer this summer.The photos show the wall that the girls made into a colorful artwork.
Below are some drawings created by the young talented artists. Some of them are from a trip to the jungle where each of them got a sketchbook and materials,and had to write and draw what they saw and did everyday.

The Bolivia Family

The Bolivia Family is a Norwegian non-governmental organization that since 1981 have helped more than a thousand Bolivian children through their network of orphanages and day care centers.

"Two thirds of Bolivia's people live beneath the poverty line, making Bolivia the poorest country on the continent of South America. As always, the children are the ones to suffer the most".

The organization is responsible for about 890 children in 17 day care and educational centers and 4 orphanages.
