Burma in Portrait Exhibition
All proceeds from the exhibition will fund a project to build a school for impoverished children in the Irrawaddy Delta region of Burma. The planned construction project will provide a clean, safe place to learn all year round. Visit www.blueskyproject.com.au for more information and to learn more about this project.
