On Tuesday October 1, 2013, children from Stichting voor het Kind [Foundation for the Children] presented the works of art they had been working on during the previous months. Artists/trainers Rinaldo Klas (visual artist and director of the Nola Hatterman Art Academy) and Leonnie van Eert (agogical worker and artistic counselor) work with the children on a weekly basis. For these children, who have met with difficult problems in their daily lives and find a refuge at the foundation, it is very important to be able to express themselves. And also, it means the world to them that they are able to make something which then is enjoyed by others.
Quota International of Suriname (Quota) funded the necessary materials and the teachers who helped the children, as they have done in the past too. They will try to raise enough funds to carry on with this marvelous project.
