NGO mission and description of the organization's work

The mission of The Sovereign Art Foundation is twin-fold: to recognise and help promote contemporary art talent around the world and to bring the proven benefits of expressive arts to disadvantaged children.

 

We are putting together a strategic plan for our organization focusing on the growth of our Make It Better (MIB) program, an initiative that supports children from low-income backgrounds and with special educational needs (SEN) in Hong Kong.MIB works in local schools and community centres to offer children a program of expressive arts workshops, designed to build self-esteem, confidence, self-awareness and interpersonal skills. The workshops cater for children aged 6-12 and are led by creative arts therapists and experienced art facilitators, supported by social workers and volunteers. In addition, MIB provides support and training to teachers, social workers and caregivers of children with SEN, by introducing them to the therapeutic benefits of art and nurturing a culture of peer-to-peer support. We would also like to assess the efficiency of current staffing model and program design as well as understand our needs for fundraising purposes.

Impact of skills-based volunteer support on NGO and mission

This will help us to plan efficiently and fund-raise effectively in addition to building the most efficient program and being able to communicate more clearly to our donors.
