Gisimba Orphanage Update - Artfully Unforgotten
With the funds raised at "GISIMBA: Understanding Through Art", Artfully Unforgotten, together with Create for a Cause, was able to cover the educational expenses, for the year of 2009, for eleven of the secondary students who are supported by the Gisimba Memorial Center Orphanage. These expenses include those related to school fees, school supplies, transportation and hygiene products. Total funds transferred to Gisimba Orphanage: $3500 USD.
Heather Metcalfe, the Director of Artfully Unforgotten, just returned from the orphanage a week ago to deliver the funds, as well as catch up on the lives of the children at Gisimba and their needs. In addition, she worked with some of the younger ones on their math and writing skills, played numerous games with the children and was able to visit the school attended by most of the children.
