Painting a New World - Peindre un Nouveau Monde (PNMW) is a
non-profit organization founded in 2008 by Agnes and Andre
We believe that art has the power to create positive change for
the benefit and sustainability of communities locally and in
PNMW is proud to support International mural projects in Africa and Haiti. PNMW provides funding to local initiatives to employ artists to design and paint murals on school walls while engaging and educating children about their environment and future.
In 2010 PNMW supported Kiangure Springs Environment Initiative (KSEI) in Kenya, with the funding of one mural for the Giakanja Primary School of Tetu.
As of September 2012, PNMW has funded 10 more murals in Kenya and successfully implemented the program in Chad where we now have six murals in different schools of N'Djamena.
Following the earthquake in Haiti, we have financially supported the Notre-Dame of Paillant school. Young students participated in the project The Gift of Art in 2012 and have won the International award for the quality of their mural. A portion of the funds awarded by PNMW was used to replace the wood stoves of the school by propane
stoves. Wood is rare in Haiti, school officials feared no longer be able to provide lunch to students.
