About Draw Your Dreams
African and Galveston County schools are often hard-pressed to include art in their curriculum. That’s beginning to change, however, for children participating in the “Draw Your Dreams” project.
Inspired and funded by New York artist Dinesh Doshi, the project, provides art supplies to thousands of students in Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa and India and, more recently, to children here in Galveston.
The children are encouraged to literally “draw their dreams” and envision a day in the future when they’ll become teachers, doctors, police officers, airline pilots and lawyers. The project is organized by African Childrens Haven in collaboration with twenty African social service organizations, six Galveston primary schools and non-profits, the Galveston Kiwanis, Galveston Parks & Recreation Department and the Galveston Arts Center.
