THE VENEZUELAN AMERICAN ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS
We are a New York Based Public Charity founded on June 13th, 1990, to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth in Acarigua, Venezuela of Jose Antonio Paez. VAEA promotes through the visual and performing arts a deeper and richer understanding by Venezuelan citizens of U.S. culture, and by U.S. citizens of Venezuelan culture.
For more than ten years we've been making change happen all over Latin America by empowering the poorest neighborhoods with the magic of Fútbol. Our work with Unicef, the UN and many private sector partners in Haiti, Venezuela and Mexico has transformed the lives of thousands of kids.
Based in Venezuela, we teach and build citizenship through the development of identity and a sense of belonging to transform spaces of encounter for the common good, developing training programs aimed at children who live in communities with the potential for transformation. We work under our own replicable and sustainable methodology developed at M.I.T. where participants and neighbors decide the space to transform and the elements that will be part of it.
We are a private non-profit institution in Venezuela with more than 79 years of experience, whose mission is to raise funds to cover the medical-assistance activities of the Children's Orthopedic Hospital for the benefit of the population from 0 to 16 years old of limited economic resources with affections of the locomotor and neuro-muscular system.
We were created in 2006 in Venezuela, born from a personal search for spaces for the integration and development of people with autism.

Since 1985, around 17,000 children have benefited from our action through Hogares Bambi.

We surround them with all the care until the moment they can reintegrate with their families in better socioeconomic conditions or adoptive families.
We are dedicated to the care of children and adolescents from 0 to 18 years old who have been deprived of their original family environment due to abandonment, mistreatment, sexual abuse, homelessness, extreme poverty, parental problems with the law, parents in alcoholism or drugs.

For many, the "Casita Feliz" becomes the only opportunity to complement their training.
