The Pure Art Foundation CAST members mobilize in teams to tackle the days work.
Joined by the local children and their parents, the group continues to make strong headway on Pure Art house #10 and even get a start on the painting by mid morning.
The new brightly colored, golden wall shines bright in the afternoon sun and provides a true sense of accomplishment for the crew, as change in the area becomes more evident.
We are just in time for a visit from then Mayor of Pucallpa who shows public support for the efforts of Pure Art. Amidst the media blitz from several local television and newspaper publications, Señor,’Aalcade commits to taking a number of steps to not only help the family moving into this house, but help integrate international initiatives like that of Pure Art into the community.
Mayor Alcade also visits the Hudson House with Bob and Leslie to see just how a Pure Art house will look when finished. He is impressed and pledges to do more to widen the ripple effect this Canadian Foundation has created.
Congratulations Bob and Leslie!
Finally with three sides up on the house, and only one go…it’s time to call it a day and off to see the children enrolled in the One School For All program, through Pure Art Foundation in Canada.
The children’s Contribution Initiative evening has been prepared by a separate group of Pure Art volunteers during the afternoon and the families arrive at the mission to enroll their children for the 2012 year.
Photos are snapped and data stored in the database to ensure every school child is assured gift of education this year. Special letters from College Bourget’s children are given to each student enrolled in the program.
It’s beaming smiles and lots of hugs as over 160 children arrive on one evening to register with their sponsors back home in Canada. We are grateful to all who have supported the children this year.
You cannot imagine how happy you have made each one! Thank you!
