Black Friday is now just 2 days away, however what we focus on are not discounts and promotions, but our awesome “Save the school Exhibition” (in Italian “Sogni a colori”). We have believed in this project and now (almost) everything is ready for the opening. The exhibition will be hosted at Medina Roma from 24 November through 7 December.
“Save The school Exhibition in Rome” will bring together twenty paintings created by children living in extreme poverty in the remote areas of Hungary, mentored by the Real Pearl Foundation. They are great canvases, created with passion by these children who are fighting to build a better future.
We’d like to raise awereness of the international community about the problems these children are facing as well as to promote the fundraising for educational activities of the 2017-2018 school year, for which the Real Pearl Foundation has not received the expected statal funds.
Moreover, we would like to promote change through art and education, and fight the vicious circle of indigence and criminality which can unfortunately afflict them. These families often live in homes without window fixtures, electricity or heating; children are ghettoized at school and their existence seems to be marked by a destiny common to all their family members. School segregation is in fact a phenomenon in many European countries, which the Council of Europe is trying to combat by inviting Member States to work in favor of inclusive education.
The Real Pearl Foundation is a Hungarian non-governmental organisation with the mission to develop the communities. They have been working on the challenges of integration and development since 1999. They provide elementary art education in 6 towns reaching 23 villages for a total 670 children of which 70% is underprivileged, 250 children come from deep poverty.
This exhibition has been achieved thanks to the fundraising campaign on the GoFundMe platform and the cooperation of Lauren Lombardo, artist and promoter of “Paint & Wine” events.
If you want to help us, you can do one (or more) of these things:
- donate on the GoFundMe campaign (still active);
- come to the Exhibition;
- buy your tickets for one of these two events by Lauren (hurry up, reservation is mandatory!):
Give yourself a fabulous present for Christmas, help these children believe that improvement and change are possible.
