MEMORY PROJECT

Description:

The Memory Project is a nonprofit organization that invites art teachers and their students to create portraits for youth around the world who have faced substantial challenges, such as neglect, abuse, loss of parents, and extreme poverty.

We want the portraits to help the children feel valued and important, to know that many people care about their well being, and to act as meaningful pieces of personal history in the future. For the art students, we want this to be an opportunity to creatively practice kindness and global awareness.

To do this, we receive photos of children and teens from global charities operating residential homes, schools, and care centers in a number of different countries every year.

We then provide our participating art teachers with full-page color prints as well as digital copies of those photos, along with plastic sleeves to protect the finished portraits.  The art teachers then work with their students to create the portraits, and we hand-deliver them to the kids (we have several different art students create portraits for each child based on several different poses). Finally, we make a video of each delivery to share with all of the art students and teachers involved.

Since 2004 we have created more than 80,000 portraits for children in 35 countries. For more information, please see our FAQs or ask us.  We would love to hear from you!
