Hands of Action Children's Art Project - Updates

Uganda Through The Eyes Of A Child

These charming drawings offer a unique insight into daily life in rural Uganda.

They were drawn by youngsters from four schools and orphanages in the district of Bududa.

The name and age of the young artist can be found in the box in the corner of the painting, just click on the image to get a larger view.

We have quite literally hundreds of pictures to go through before deciding on which ones we will use for a physical exhibition.

As we scan them, and prepare them for the online gallery, we'll keep posting little "teasers" here for you to enjoy.

The volunteers in Uganda, and of course the hundreds of children from schools and orphanages involved, put a lot of effort into these gems. These are their dreams.

These youngsters have the same dreams and aspirations as any child you know. They want to be doctors, pilots, nurses, engineers, teachers, firemen, policemen, farmers. All of them seem to want to become someone who contributes to society, to their community.

And this is where you can help. At the foot of the page we have put a donate button. You can contribute as much - or as little - as you feel comfortable with. The funds will be used to buy frames for the finally selected pictures to be displayed in public and auctioned.

If there is any money left over from the donations, it will go directly to the schools, orphanages and children who participated in this project. All of the work of putting this together is being done by volunteers. So you can rest assured, every dollar you donate, will go to putting this project together, which means it goes to the kids.

You can see more of the children's drawings here!
