Painting by Marie Ange
MY DREAM IS STILL ALIVE!
Hello dear friends. Its Marie Ange again.
I thank all who voted for me in the just concluded Spring drawing academy competition. Though I didn’t win to be part of the academy this time, I still have my dream in front of my eyes. That dream is to learn drawing from a world famous academy so that I can in turn teach art to the many talented street children whom my husband and I minister to each week. We have established art clubs across the city streets of Nairobi and rescue centres and through art these children and young people can have a better livelihood.
Through selling my art I can support our feeding, accommodation, education and reintegration programs of the street children and families.
My drawing above is actually from a photo I took of John and his little sister Faith sleeping in one of the footbridges over passing a busy highway in Nairobi. They are among many street children who live and sleep on the streets and have need of alternative care. That’s what we are seeking to provide.
Please help me achieve my dream by voting for me.
My joining the academy will help me do better drawings, which can sell better to support our work. I also want to one day start a drawing academy in my native Madagascar, which will in turn help many upcoming young artists.
Together, we can make this dream come true.
Please vote, vote, vote.
