Finding Sunshine is an arts-based project working to restore semblances of hope for a brighter future for orphaned or under-privileged children in Sri Lanka. In light of the recent Tsunami disaster, this most affected and vulnerable group of victims have found themselves more in need of help then ever before.
Understanding the very real possibility of a child faced with a futile future for the lack of basic welfare and resources, Finding Sunshine will seek to raise funds through the auctioning of works by artists and photographers showcasing their interpretation of the search for hope in trying circumstances. Part of the proceeds will also go in aid of the Budding Artists Fund, a programme of The Arts House supporting young artistic talents hampered by less then ideal economic status.
Finding Sunshine working in conjunction with the YMCA of Singapore will ensure that the appropriate channeling of funds will go to where it is most needed.
