SUPPORT LOCAL ARTISTS, EMPOWER & EDUCATE NEPAL GIRLS
2-‐Day Art Sale and Raffle Benefitting the Rukmini Foundation
(Pittsburgh, PA) – The Rukmini Foundation, a local nonprofit serving girls in rural Nepal, is hosting an art sale and raffle on Friday, January 18 (6PM-‐11PM) and Saturday, January 19 (12PM-‐5PM) at emerge, a community space for arts and technology, located at 55 Penn Avenue in Garfield.
The 2-‐day event will include cocktails, live music and showcase street art, photography, paintings and mixed media from emerging Pittsburgh artists; a portion of the proceeds will provide scholarships for 8th-‐10th grade girls in Nepal.
Located in South Asia between Thailand and India, Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world. With an average income of just $2 per day, poverty and hardship are a reality for Nepali people, girls and women especially.
Education is at the heart of breaking this cycle. The Rukmini Foundation was built on the belief that to educate a girl is to educate a community. By providing equal access to education and regular medical care, the Foundation protects young girls from dangers of exploitation and enables them to qualify for college or employment.
The Rukmini Foundation supported its freshman class of 10 students in Spring 2013. These young, empowered girls and future classes will be the catalyst for true development and positive change in Nepal.
