Jr.-Sr. High School art students send hope and love through their portraits to children in an orphanage in Tanzania – 7,905 miles away

Students in Jeremy Lebediker’s art class spent the past several months creating portraits of 14 children living in an orphanage in Tanzania – 7,905 miles away.

The portraits, part of the Memory Project, were recently delivered to the children.

“I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that your school’s art department has provided them with personal gifts to last a lifetime,” said the letter from the Memory Project. Since 2004, the Memory Project has created more than 100,000 portraits for children in 43 countries.
