PAINTINGS - WORDS - FILM - REFRESHMENTS

The BINDU-ART-SCHOOL uses art to change the lives of people affected by leprosy. By painting pictures and selling them at international exhibitions, as well as at www.bindu-art.at, the students attain financial independence without the discrimination of receiving alms.

By way of a snowball effect, the students of the BINDU - MOVEMENT support similarly affected individuals with 30% of their income and, in turn, teach them what they themselves have learned. For people affected by leprosy this unique process is far removed from a charity-based approach. They are consequently treated with respect and attain dignity. Indeed, their lives become resurrected.
