Memory Project 2014 Paraguay and Ghana

For the past two years with the Memory Project, Riverview Middle school  has drawn pictures of orphans in Nicaragua, Nepal and Vietnam. This year we are drawing pictures of orphans in Paraguay and Ghana. Students learn about the country, learn about the kids and then draw and send their portraits. Months later Memory Project sends back photos of the kids holding their portraits and a video of them receiving the portraits. Best project ever.The materials for this project are supplied by grants from Donors Choose.
