Our Beliefs

  • We believe the lack of money is not the greatest need of those living in poverty. Their greatest need is to learn to make use of opportunities to better themselves.
  • We believe the best way to help is to not be too helpful. Being overly helpful creates dependence, and our goal is to foster independence.
  • We believe education of the young is key to long term independence for the family.
  • We believe in empowering adults through informal education and providing them with opportunities to change.
  • We believe Art For Humanity is one big family that not only cares for others; we also care for each other. We offer encouragement, insight, support, connection and motivation to each other as well as to those we serve. Welcome to the family.
  • We believe in treating all people equally regardless of their age, faith, gender, ethnicity or anything else.
  • We believe volunteers gain as they give, learn as they teach and feel more hope as they help.

These beliefs are woven into the fabric of all our projects.
