Hello Mural Project supporters,

We have officially landed back in the USA and phase ONE of the Mural Project is complete. The journey, as many of you know, was incredible and inspiring in so many ways.

We are already looking into next steps and new ideas for the continuation of the project.

But FIRST, be on the look out for your Mural Project GIFTS, they are coming soon. We need addressed from some of you who should all have received a survey email asking for your home address.

Hopefully you all had a chance to follow the blog throughout the trip at www.freecapacity.org.

More soon! And of course, as always, thank you for being a part of this incredible journey. You were with us every step of the way. Thank you from our hearts.

-Chantal and Marianne

Prints for sale by DonatioN

Greetings from Awassa, Ethiopia!!

We have begun the second mural and are excited to be taking on a new set of challenges including more twice the amount of children we are working with as well as a much larger canvas (a huge corrugated metal fence!)  LOVING it.

The latest from The Mural Project is our new fundraising round (!!!) We are selling original prints made by the children of Fursa Children's Centre in Kenya. We selected some of the best portraits from one of our art classes and, as you will see, there is some serious talent among this young group of children.

All print sales are by donation and 20% goes back to Fursa. Many people have become acquainted with some of the kids through our posts and videos and now we are offering our supporters a way to have a piece of the project all to themselves.

Check out the prints at our website:

We are excited to be offering a piece of the project that everyone can enjoy. The work is truly beautiful. My cousin bought a goat for a villager in southeast Asia once as a Christmas present; this is kind of like that but more palpable  :)

LOVE,

Chantal and Marainne

We are now in Ethiopia, having arrived about a week ago in Addis Ababa and are now in the town of Awassa, where the second mural will be created with Awassa Children's Project. It is lovely here; we are staying at a place right on Lake Awassa...monkeys, birds and hippos galore.. I even had my toast stolen and juice glass broken by a very crafty little monkey this morning..very cute. Doors and Windows are opening all around for The Mural Project. Sending this message with JOY and gratitude..Keep tabs on our website posts...there are lots of great pics and some stories too.  The video is a special treat as well.
