The mission of herARTS in Action is to produce and sell environmentally friendly artwork that educates on global topics, creates social change, and in turn funds sustainability projects in Burkina Faso. The vision is that herARTS in Action contributes to the attainment of sustainable socioeconomic status, including education, employment, and health, for the women and children of Burkina Faso based on the stated need and desires of the people and in a manner respectful of the culture. The money raised by this future nonprofit (501c3 status is pending) helps with access to healthy drinking water and education.
Sarah Drake took her first trip to Africa in the summer of 2011. She went to Burkina Faso in West Africa and fell in love with the people and places. The women and children in the village of Tiebele inspired Sarah to fundraise for projects that will lead to health, education, and sustainable economic status. Using her artwork as an education tool and fundraiser, she went on to create herARTS in Action when she returned to the United States.
