HIS NAME IS ZAMIR AND HE HAS A JOB!
We are so excited to announce our first "cottage industry" up and running at Iskra, Home of Men with Disabilities. Zamir has been hired as the new Art Director. He will be responsible for getting art work made by the men of the home - all of which will be brought back to Canada and the United States to be sold. All profits will benefit the artists and bring more materials to continue their art projects.
We are grateful for Dr. Jordan Greenbaum of Atlanta, Georgia for sponsoring this project start up. Zamir will be paid monthly. In addition, each artist will be paid for their work. Once again - just bringing hope and dignity to the men of ISKRA.
AND NEXT? Well, how about a woodworking shop? They presently have a barber shop - which was started by our partners John and Julie Wright. Let's keep the "cottage industry" idea going. Want to help set up a woodworking shop? Let us know - we will be pleased to make it happen.
