Wendy would like you to support
Art for Belize Children
by making a donation and helping spread the word.
Can you imagine sending your child to a school where one pencil is shared with 6 other children? In the country of Belize, this is a reality.
Students there lack basic school supplies, such as pencils, glue, scissors, erasers, markers and crayons. A standard pack of 8 crayons cost $2 in Belize. A father doesn’t make much more than that in a day. If the children are ever to use these art materials, they must be available in the classrooms.
The Ministry of Education and Sports allocates only one hour a week for the arts. Children need to be given the opportunity for their creativity to be released, and that’s exactly what art does.
I am teaching an art workshops to the faculty of 2 schools in Cayo to give them much needed training and art experience. Most teachers in Belize have not taken any hands-
The purchase and shipment of art supplies are extremely expensive. Your help is greatly appreciated by all the teachers and children of the Cayo District of Belize.
