GHS Art Students Give Back in a Global Way
Portrait by Emmalee Lawrence

GHS students were provided photos of children ages 3-4 from Colombia and drew portraits that will be hand-delivered to the children during the holiday season.  Although GHS students will not meet their young friend in person, they will get to see their child's face on video as they are presented the cherished artwork.  

About the children:
Most children in Colombia are doing well. However, as in all countries, some children are facing substantial challenges, and each child who will receive the portrait has a different story.  These children all live in a very poor shanty town, often with a single parent or grandparent.  Over the past decades, many Colombians have fled to such shanty towns to escape the drug-related violence, murders, and kidnappings in their country’s more rural areas.  Systemic poverty in these towns leads to many on-going social problems, especially for women and children.
