Empowering Children Through Art
ORENDA [oh-ren-duh]. (noun) a mystical force present in all people that empowers them to affect the world, or to effect change in their own lives.
We all have this mystical force within us and at The Orenda Tribe we are on a mission of exploring our own ORENDA while inspiring the children and the people of our partner communities to find theirs.
Using the tool of ART.
We personally go to refugee camps and less fortunate communities beautify educational centers and empower children using ART.
Our art workshops are tailored in a way that aims to empower people to make positive change in their own communities, teach children life skills and communicate inspiring messages to them using art and promote education through beautifying educational centers.
The people of the community join us in the beautification process and end up contributing to their community and positively impacting their surroundings. An act of empowerment.
Through the artwork, we communicate inspiring messages to the children and involve them in art activities that build life-skills such as team work and problem solving.
We beautify the surroundings that children visit on daily basis, hence encourage them to look forward to go to school and study.
And we do all of this while bridging the gap between communities and breaking barriers between people. In all of our projects we have volunteers working hand in hand with the people of the communities, getting to know them on a personal level, regardless of their differences.
And this is the power of art. This is what we stand for at The Orenda Tribe! #ArtForHope
