Heart To Haiti

Have you ever seen a child’s small fingers busily guiding a crayon over a sheet of paper? Or observed a child sinking their hands into a moist ball of clay, kneading and squeezing and forming sculptures? If yes, then you have seen the concentration on these children’s faces, and the joyful expressions of art explored. You have witnessed how deeply they are affected by experiencing creative art.

When a child creates, they are nourishing their entire being- training their linguistic, logical and mathematical skills, stimulating and developing imagination and critical thinking. Art is an amazing educational tool! It increases motivation to learn and heightens children’s self-esteem; it makes them feel good about what they have to say and how they say it and helps them to learn how to work cooperatively.

It is therefore vitally important to integrate Art into a child’s life. Sadly though, many children from deprived backgrounds, particularly in a developing country such as Haiti, are not given the time, space and resources to play and create. As soon as they are able to walk, they have to watch over their siblings while their parents are away working. As soon as their bodies are capable of manual work, they spend their entire days helping their parents to earn money. We at Hope to Haiti are committed to bring art opportunities and self-expression for the vulnerable children of Haiti.

Make a donation today to our efforts. We feel a childhood should be a time of playful expression and celebration of self and life.
