In the education space, stress, anxiety and violence are more prevalent than ever. According to the National Center for Educational Statistics, “in 2015, about 21 percent of students ages 12–18 reported being bullied at school during the school year.” Programs that improve the learning environment by reducing bullying and other traumatizing behavior can thus be very valuable.
That’s why DDF came up with the idea to take art on the road. The mission is to take few children per year to travel beyond the city limits to visit other performance halls, poetry corners, dance studios, museums, etc. The funds would cover travel, board and food. DDF’s program will give the children a sense of comfort, excitement, support, confidence, ambition and drive to succeed. This program is designed to give education a boost in a fun way while showing our kids that the arts are fundamental to our humanity. They ennoble and inspire us to foster creativity, goodness, and beauty. The arts bring us joy, help us express our values, and build bridges between cultures. Exploring the arts in various states is also a fundamental tool to promote a healthy atmosphere—strengthening them socially, educationally, and economically. These benefits persist even in difficult social and economic times. Your gift is needed more than ever and will go to work in the heart of communities where children are most in need. Thank you for standing with the children today!
