A quick guide to navigate you through our work.
Thanks to the many talented artists, performers, and volunteers who have helped make us so humble.
Current Humanitarian Support
Artists for World Peace pays living and educational expenses for 13 children in China, Haiti, India, and Tanzania. Under the Children of Peace umbrella, we have also helped 12 Haitian students travel to Brazil, where they are pursuing higher education unavailable in Haiti. We’ll continue to keep you posted on their progress in 2014.
Artists for World Peace spearheads annual efforts to improve food security for individuals and families in need by donating to the local food bank monthly. We will continue these efforts in 2014.
We look forward to returning to Tanzania in August 2014 and our continued efforts in making all our projects grow and prosper.
Upcoming Projects and Events
2014 “Year of the Girl”
Many exciting events and project will be happening in 2014 in support of “Our Year of the Girl” campaign. We can’t wait to share them with you. Coming soon.
Artists for World Peace on Broadway
2013 was another evening to remember as 17 Broadway performers took the stage at club 54 Below in New York City for a star-studded evening of dancing and musical entertainment. 2014 will bring yet another unforgettable evening.
This series of salon-style house concerts, held at the Hubbard House in Middletown, Black-eyed Sally’s in Hartford, and private venues, helps support the Children of Peace. Looking ahead to 2014, the Hubbard House will invite back familiar favorites as well as new artists to perform in our One Concert, On Child series.
This past benefit at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center & Theatre in Old Saybrook included performances by ten dance companies, live music, a fine art auction, and a crafts market. We look forward to another spectacular event in 2014.
Artists for World Peace provides need-based scholarships and grants to students and emerging artists working in a variety of disciplines. 2014 will boast another year by honoring new students and artists in need.
Santa Clara Scholarship Endowment Fund
Artists for World Peace met the wonderful children at Santa Clara and delivered 500 pairs of shoes. We are currently discussing adding the educational expenses of a Brazilian child to the Children of Peace project.
Safe House for Women and Children
Artists for World Peace built a battered women’s shelter in Cambodia, raising the money through our first Hats for a Cause event. Twenty-five artists from around Connecticut came together to design and create one-of-a-kind hats that were sold or auctioned.
Ecuador and Beyond
Indigenous Shuar children living in a remote village could not attend school because they did not have shoes, so Artists for World Peace procured 500 pairs. The last leg of the trip included loading the shoes into canoes and hauling them up an Amazon waterway. After supplying the shoes, we helped build the Amazon Refuge School. Since then, we have delivered 500 (or so) pairs of weather-appropriate shoes whenever our volunteers have visited humanitarian project sites: the rain forest of Ecuador, sites in Africa, or Native American reservations in the United States.
