Graffiti 2 Works' Purpose
Your participation in this benefit will support both Graffiti 2 Works and WorldCrafts.
The benefit supports Graffiti 2 Works's vision of assisting adults interested in pursuing personal growth and education through:
- High School Equivalency Exam- assisted independent study
- Job Hunting- coaching adults in searching, applying, and interviewing for a job
- Group Classes- Self-defense, Financial Literacy, Health and Nutrition, Art, Knitting, and Reading
One in five young adults in Mott Haven are considered “idle.” They are not in school and are not employed. Additionally, 20 percent of adults seeking work are unemployed, and there are thousands of first-generation adult immigrants. Graffiti 2 Works sees not only the needs of their neighbors, but also their great potential. To help them achieve their potential, Graffiti 2 Works coaches adults in developing physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual skills.
Like Graffiti 2 Works, WorldCrafts, the fair trade division of Woman's Missionary Union, brings grace and restoration to hurting people throughout the world. WorldCrafts exists to develop sustainable, fair-trade businesses among impoverished people. Our vision is to offer an income with dignity and the hope of everlasting life to every person on earth.
Graffiti 2 Works Artisan Group
Graffiti 2 Works has become a WorldCrafts artisan group. Learning sewing skills and selling products not only provides Graffiti 2’s artisans with a job, but also helps build self-esteem, develops relationships among the artisans, and encourages faith in God. Graffiti 2 Works artisans produce beautiful hand-sewn products for WorldCrafts.
