Memory Project

The Memory Project, a nonprofit organization in Wisconsin, invites art teachers and their students to create and donate portraits to youth around the world who have faced substantial challenges, such as neglect, abuse, loss of parents, violence, and poverty. The art students use photographs of the children, then create the portraits and TMP delivers them. This year seven Advanced Art students participated with portraits of children from the Philippines, over 12 million people live in extreme poverty with the average wage of $2 per day.
