Empower a child from a low-income, minority community in New York City to become an agent of healing and a voice of positive change.
The award-winning Children's Theater Company encourages children to transcend cultural boundaries through creative workshops that inspire them to engage as active citizens in their community. Using theater, music, and dance, the children work together to creatively respond to current ethical issues, such as the strife in Darfur, and to develop the self-confidence to use artistic expression to change our world for the better.
The children raise awareness in their community and inspire action from their audiences through ongoing local performances and an annual event at the United Nations.
Your offering gives a child a chance to participate in 15 sessions of production, and to make diverse and long-lasting friendships that are grounded in the power of creativity, unity, and action, and the confidence to be a voice for positive change in today's world.
70% of your gift goes directly to our partner organization. The remaining funds go to the gift of compassion envelope, packaging, and other foundation overhead.
