It’s just another Manic Monday. Today at work, I had a scheduled appointment with Ms. Gillen Mendoza, Admin Assistant at the Department of Tourism for Tarlac Province to discuss about our Partnership Program Tie-up proposal. I was supposed to meet her at Tarlac Capitol but she informed me to see her at Museo De Tarlac.
By happy chance, Museo de Tarlac features Arts & Crafts Exhibit in line with Persons & Children with Special Needs. This is in commemoration for the Autism Consciousness Week. Exhibit started last February 1 until February 10, 2017.
Arts were made by the children of Amor Village in Anao, Tarlac.
AMOR ( Accelerating Minors Opportunity for Recovery ) Village is situated in Barangay San Francisco East, Anao Tarlac. The village is a center for Tarlac’s Street Children.I had been in Amor Village while i was working in my previous company. Seeing their arts and craft conveys a pure tenderness in my heart because i know how difficult, how complex, and how heavy the burden of these children went through in their lives. These children are mentally retarded, some are autistic, blind, have multiple disabilities, were abandoned by their own families and were physically abused. For a normal person like me, I feel so privileged and honored to see their remarkable creations and artworks.
Here are some of my favorite picks. 🙂
Handcrafts like wall clocks, wallet, keychain, photoframe were also presented.
You can extend help to these children by purchasing their works. Some of the artworks were already reserved. You can also give your support and assistance through voluntary donation.
Certainly, I wouldn’t miss the chance to have a photo next to this extraordinary pieces of Art made by impressive and innocent Gifted Children.. 🙂
