Drawchange is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to empowering impoverished children through the use of art therapy-based programming. Our programs teach coping skills that foster Collaboration, Creation, Dream-building, Empowerment, Imagination, Self-Esteem, and Stress-Relief.
What We Do and Why
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 children worldwide to create real and lasting change for them, their families and their communities.
The time they spend creating allows the therapeutic aspect of art to flow through them, encouraging them to explore their subconscious and conscious thoughts. By igniting their innate creative spark, the children learn a healthy way to process emotions so that they can turn them into something truly remarkable.
