How well do you know issues that are not highlighted in conventional media? Probably not much, right? Or maybe you could say you are slightly better off, now that social media has become commonplace. Platforms such as Facebook and Twitter have undoubtedly played a huge, and vital role, in turning the world’s attention to issues that have failed to make it to mainstream media, for one reason or another.
That said, these are not the only platforms on which you can get an insight into some of the most pleasing issues. Some avenues have pretty much remained underground, but continue to play an equally important role, in alleviating the world of some of its worst abuses.
When you talk about such avenues, you are definitely speaking about Art Works Projects. This is a non-profit, multi-national organisation, that focuses on the paint and brush, to raise the world’s awareness of touchy issues like famine, child labour, human trafficking, and other violations of human rights.
It works together with other humanitarian bodies and individuals, with the aim of bringing a change to some of the world’s worst affected areas. The primary objective is to bring these issues, which are often missed by, or pushed out of the prime time news, to the world’s attention, with the hope that people with the necessary resources can intervene in whatever small way, that can make a positive impact.
If, for instance, a general practitioner such as found on livi.co.uk, realises through art projects, that some rescued children require medical help, they can establish an online contact with the rescue group. Through an app, a practitioner can confidentially help such kids, even remotely, while situated miles away.
