Help Homeless Children



As recorded, almost 29,000 children were removed from their homes in Arizona rendering them homeless. In fact,  Arizona is the 45th state out of the 50 states in United State with highest rate of child crises ranging from neglect and abuses. To help government cushion this disastrous menace of child crisis and invariable restoring hope and equal opportunity to children from Arizona, Cherishing Arts Initiative  came up with a great cause called Cherishing Art Contest with the theme “Imagination is Power”

Cherishing Arts Initiative is an initiave of Foundation for Inter-Cultural Dialogue and Child Crisis with a mission of raising awareness for neglected, abused and homeless children among the healthy kids through artistic expression  which will go a long way to create a healthy environment for the success of these deprived children. We also indirectly reduce the rate of crime and other social vices that could have been exhibited by these homeless children via our initiative.

Basically, Cherishing Art Contest 2016 is packaged in two phases. Firstly, we aim at increasing the awareness and to a great extent elaborate on some of the serious problems encountered by homeless, abused and neglected children. We plan achieving this by engaging the healthy students who are artistically skillful and ready to put a stop  to this pressing issue by making contributions via their artworks and donations. These artworks will later be auctioned and the dividend  channel toward helping the deprived and less privileged children. The second phase of this program is fundraising through  your humble and  generous donations to help meet up with the needs of the deprived children in Arizona. This can be done in this platform. Your donation will highly be appreciated and gravely received for such a good cause.

You donations will help us reach out schools, libraries, community centers and eventually more kids to raise awareness.
