Hola Friends! If you know me (AndreaBelliniArt.com) then you know I have a life-long commitment to children and education through art and peace. This is what easily led me to PazOaxaca.org in Oaxaca, Mexico. I am a proud intern in our free after-school program for public school children called Paz&Play. Here in Oaxaca school lasts only half-day ending at 1:00PM or earlier. Therefore, our program provides students with new leadership opportunities and to study English in a fun interactive way through art and play. We also connect with Nature and each other in meaningful ways that cultivate inner and outer peace. And of course importantly our program provides families the needed support to work full-time without worrying about their children's welfare and growth.
Our shared hope is to create a community of empowered children and families who have the resources and support they need to thrive and make positive changes in society. We believe that this is the path of peace.
Every contribution makes an impact on our students' experience and is very appreciated. Your donations cover many costs listed below and also allow us to make additions to our bilingual library...the children are book worms like me! I have included links above for you to learn more about all our programs and costs below. However, I welcome any of your questions! Andrea@pazoaxaca.org I am in my second month and of course already have many beautiful stories to share. I'll keep you updated. Please spread the word to family, friends, and peacemakers in your circles!
Thank you for joining us on this path to peace!!!
