Mia’s Children Association
Mia’s Children Association was born of a dream. To help the children of Romania build better lives away from poverty, abusive homes, prostitution, abandonment and drugs.
Founded in 1998 by Mia Scarlat, Mia’s Children provides daily tutoring, counseling, art, singing, writing, drama and Scripture reading. The children are taught respect of themselves and each other. They are taught love. For many of the children, their stay with Mia is the first time they have been exposed to music, culture, beauty and self expression through art. Painting is a favorite pastime and much of the children’s art has been exhibited.
We, at Children Skills for Life, have been so taken with the children’s art that we have created a beautiful series of Holiday Cards, All-Occasion Cards and a Wall Calendar featuring their paintings. These items are available for individual purchase, and can also be made available at a quantity discount to your organization for fundraising purposes.
Mia’s Children can continue its mission only through the support of people who care. 100% of the funds raised through donations to Children Skills for Life and the sale of the Mia’s Children Calendar, Holiday Cards and All-Occasion Cards will be donated directly to “Mia’s Children Association” in Romania to provide for their day-to-day needs.
