Art classes were conducted for children affected by AIDS in the Doen Penh slum community. Many of the children are the primary income earners for families ravaged by AIDS. They work shinning shoes, scavenging garbage or selling newspapers and often cannot go to school.
In cooperation with the Indradevi Association, 2006-2009
Art in a Box brought art and school supplies to families affected by AIDS living in Phnom Penh’s squatter communities and in villages in Takmao. Although families affected by AIDS are among the poorest of the poor, art brings joy to the children and their parents.
In cooperation with the Indradevi Association and Krousar Thmey, 2007
Ninety children from the slum communities of Phnom Penh enjoyed a day in the countryside on an Art in a Box field trip. Each child received a sketchbook and pencils so they could continue to practice their artwork and an Art in Society Art Award Certificate in recognition of their talents. It was a happy day!
