2015 Memory Portraits (Nepal)
Creating portraits for children living in Nepal.
The project is based off of Ben Schumaker’s “The Memory Project”, a unique initiative in which artists create portraits for those living in challenging situations around the world. In addition to the portraits, each artist's goal was to raise $250 USD or 1 year's education for their child.
Rebuilding Nepal isn’t only about homes. Jobs have been lost with children now missing out on an education due to lack of money for school fees.
Just $250 USD a year can pay for a child to remain safely in school learning the skills to help rebuild Nepal in the future.
A HUGE thank you on behalf of everyone at Himalayan Peoples Project – Nepal and Hope & Challenge for the amazing kindness you’re showing the children through your paintings. The children and their families are incredibly relieved and so so happy to be receiving your help with their education. It’s a massive weight off the whole family’s shoulders with more money available for survival and of course, immeasurable hope for a better future for their children which is beyond words…
– Beth Halford, CEO Himalayan People’s Project Nepal
Thank You To Artists & Supporters!
