NICARAGUA 07 - Traveling to Nicaragua with Change for Children and one of their funders, the Flaman Foundation, for a tour of their water projects, International Funk and Avatar Productions produced two shorts from the trip, one being FUNarte.

"Change for Children Association works in partnership with the Nicaraguan organization, FUNARTE (Foundation ART!) to provide artistic and cultural programs to children living in poverty. FUNARTE’s goal is to offer alternative educational opportunities to boost young peoples’ self esteem and engage them in community development.

Through creative, energetic activities, FUNARTE ensures that Nicaragua’s youth are aware of their human rights and involved in building a society that respects them. FUNARTE has offered responsive programming to some of Nicaragua’s most at-risk youth since 1989. Through muralism, leadership training, and arts -based rights education FUNARTE’s programs empower youth to engage their communities in recognizing and celebrating the value of youth in Nicaragua’s future.

While FUNARTE has inspired international recognition for their groundbreaking approach to advocacy on the human rights of children in Nicaragua, funding from local government is practically non-existent. Change for Children has partnered with FUNARTE to ensure that their programs continue to empower the impoverished youth of Nicaragua."
