GlassArtProjects.com offers easy kits for the classroom or home. All of the students create their own glass collage that is then composed into one large glass platter (the Glass Art Project company does this part) or fired individually. The kits come with everything you need, it is fool-proof fun and easy! An amazing art project and money maker for a school auctions and fundraisers.

Our goal is to construct a building for the local Primary School consisting of three classrooms. Currently, the students are taught in classrooms made of corn stalks with dirt floors and desks that are in serious disrepair. As the school consists of four grade levels of 101 students, it qualifies as an official school yet each year, for the past six years since its founding, the school is neglected and government funding is delayed until the next year. In a country where it is not yet possible for every child to be educated due to schools being inaccessible, the villagers are aware of how special their school is and how fortunate they are to be able to give their children an education from well trained educators. All they lack is a safe, clean, comfortable learning space. Although they do not have the financial resources to achieve this on their own, the community has pledged to contribute a considerable amount of materials and labor.

Thank you for watching.
