polish benefit for bolivia
I was recently asked if I would design, pro-bono, a Fotoplay page for an International Project initiated by the Early Stage School in Warsaw, Poland, to benefit indigenous children from Bolivia. This page will be given out to everyone who purchases the CDs and DVDs created by Early Stage with their partnering schools in South America.
Since 2005, International Projects have been an important part of the education of the students at Early Stage. The goal of each project is to awaken the students’ interest in other countries’ culture, art, history and music. In collaboration with children and NGOs from the third-world countries, children record songs, create plays, and take part in documentary films. During the Christmas season, the school offers project-related CDs and DVDs to the parents. The money is then used to benefit children in developing countries. This year’s project is called The Magic Book of South America. All the proceeds will be destined to help the indigenous children from Bolivia. Two Bolivian NGOs and one Polish organization are cooperating with Early Stage School to help carry out the project.

The Papaya Foundation aims to provide comprehensive help to children and youth in developing countries. Special care is given to children who for a variety of reasons, were forced to live on the streets in Latin America.
