Visuals show children's memories of peace and newfound hope for safe communities
"Art for Orphans," a sale of more than 30 original drawings, paintings and collages by elementary and high school children in Bosnia and Croatia. Themes and styles dramatically reflect the sense of loss and hopes for a bright future of the youth in the war-torn Balkans.
Sponsored by the Marian Wright Edelman Institute for the Study of Children, Youth and Families at San Francisco State University, proceeds will benefit WiRED (World Internet Resources for Education and Development), the nonprofit organization that uses computer technology to address social and health problems at the grassroots level.
