Empowering Children

It takes a village, a community

How we're continuing to serve.

Drawchange contributes to the education of homeless, refugee, poor, and at-risk 5-10-year-old children by bringing art into their daily lives.* Children are naturally creative. However, many of the world’s children have no means or encouragement to envision a break in the cycle of poverty. We provide the means to improve school attendance, leading to gains in academic performance, by supplying the materials and art therapy-based instruction that inspire them to emerge from the poverty cycle.


Although intelligence and skill are generally associated with the fast and efficient firing of neurons subjects who tested high in creativity had thinner white matter and connecting axons that have the effect of slowing nerve traffic in the brain. This slowdown in the left frontal cortex, a region where emotional and cognitive abilities are integrated, Dr. Jung, suggested, “might allow for the linkage of more disparate ideas, more novelty, and more creativity.” **

* In 2005, The Rand Corporation observed that involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skills.
