We are excited to have received an update from one of our programs in Ethiopia! We are overjoyed to see the paintings we made with the children still hanging in Lelt Foundation’s dining hall over five months later. The children’s wish birds (pictured in center) are still flying high from the ceilings and making sure their wishes for their futures come true.

We are happy to see the heavy canvases hanging up after the hard work it took to nail them into the concrete walls.

Our Art Beyond Borders programs forage cross continental relationships to empower children to eradicate poverty on a global level. When we receive updates like these, we know that our efforts to empower impoverished children are being met with just as much passion across seas.

Pictured here is our Ethiopia Programs Supervisor Hailemekael Desalegn pictured with a student from the Lelt Foundation. She stole our hearts away, and we are happy to see that she is still in great spirits. Art Beyond Borders creates connections that last a lifetime. All of the students we met and interacted with will always be in our thoughts. We are excited for the continued relationships with our programs nation wide, and we look forward to sharing more updates in the future!
