Volunteers form group that teaches art to youth
by Amielle Pamo

Creating a bright future for children starts with providing a fundamental aspect of youth: learning.

A regular child spends almost a quarter for his or her life learning. Even after the stage of going to school to gain knowledge, being an adult still requires wisdom.

What about the less fortunate? Teaching can be free but giving enough knowledge to secure a path for a better future needs more resources to offer hope for children.

This was the driving force that pushed volunteers from Baguio City in forming a group that aims to provide children their needs and hope to move forward in life.

Links started operating in 2016 with majority of their members residing in Baguio City.

Recently, Links members led by Ningning Doble organized Paint Nite, a fundraising activity for interested artists and non-artists who want to learn the fundamentals of painting, bring out the artist in them, and use painting as a therapeutic activity.

“Baguio is a creative city,” Doble said when asked about their motivation in making such activity.

One of the members of Links is Silvino Dulnuan, a master artist of Paint Nite and a Baguio artist who has been teaching art to kids during his free summer workshops.

“Art is a form of healing,” he said, adding that art can bring happiness to people.

During the event, the master artist executes a step-by-step process of creating their own versions of a masterpiece which the participants followed.

With their banner “Building bridges for children,” Links has been organizing fundraising activities and outreach programs to give children the chance to study like every other child in the country.

Through donations, partnerships, and sponsorships, Links was able to provide books and other resources to children in need in different parts of the Philippines.

In three years, Links was able to provide help to 20 elementary schools, four orphanages/mission groups, three day care centers, and one high school in the country.

Another Paint Nite has been assured. For those who missed the previous paint nites or will be unavailable for the next, Links is willing to receive donations, which will be given to the less-fortunate children.
