Welcome to The Art Project, an inspiring initiative that harnesses the transformative power of art to empower young leaders among Internally Displaced Children in Kachin, Myanmar. Our project has grown over time, nurturing the creativity of multiple cohorts, each contributing to positive change in the lives of these resilient children. We are immensely grateful to our generous donors who share our values and mission, making this endeavor possible. Let’s explore the incredible journey of our cohorts and the impactful contributions of our compassionate donors.

At The Art Project, our mission is to create a safe and nurturing space for Internally Displaced Children, where they can explore their creative potential through art. We believe in the healing and empowering qualities of artistic expression, and we are dedicated to fostering leadership skills and self-confidence among these young individuals. Thanks to the unwavering support of our donors, we can continue to strive for a future where art plays a pivotal role in promoting social justice and alleviating poverty in the Asia-Pacific region.

Cohort-1 and Cohort-2

Individual Donors Funded:

Cohort-1 and Cohort-2 were the pioneers of our project, hailing from Laiza and the Alen Bum School for Internally Displaced Children in Kachin. Their artistic journey was made possible by the generous contributions of individual donors who firmly believe in our project’s values and vision. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Nawgu Hkaja and Nangzing Maureen Seng Mai, who not only supported us financially but also serve as esteemed advisors and fundraisers for The Art Project. Their dedication and passion have been instrumental in shaping the path of our young artists.

Cohort-3 and Cohort-4

mpowered by UnionAID:

Building upon the success of our earlier cohorts, we were privileged to have Cohort-3 and Cohort-4 from the Alen Bum School for Internally Displaced Children funded by UnionAID, a development organization from New Zealand. UnionAID’s commitment to empowering working people and young leaders aligns perfectly with our goals, and their support has significantly amplified the impact of our project. These cohorts flourished under the nurturing environment created by UnionAID’s generosity, fostering creativity and leadership among the children


Sponsored by the New Zealand Embassy:

The journey continued with Cohort-5, comprising talented young minds from the Htoi Ningshawng School in Mai Ja Yang, Kachin. We are indebted to the New Zealand Embassy in Myanmar for their belief in the power of art to effect positive change. Their sponsorship not only enabled us to nurture the artistic talents of these children but also helped us expand our outreach, spreading the message of empowerment through art to a broader community.
