Cambodia Mural Project
SG Studios teamed up with Agape International Missions (AIM) to minister and support girls in the Svay Pak region who have been victims of the sex trade. Eager for this opportunity, Shane Grammer chose a team of people to join him in Cambodia. Their journey took part on April 12th 2010.
SG STUDIOS MISSION
SG Studios’ mission for their project in Cambodia was to reach out to girls forced into prostitution in the Svay Pak community by joining with AIM, an organization that rescues and starts the process of restoration with the girls in human trafficking. Shane, the project leader, had anticipated the project and stated; “we will be painting murals with girls from this organization (AIM), who are in the process of restoration. I just found out that some of the girls are actually still in prostitution and this mural project is just one way to reach out to them. Bring them joy and hope through the arts.”
SG Studios hoped to not only have fun and bring joy to the girls they painted murals with, but also to give them exciting new options for their future as potential artists. Shane states: “We were excited to focus in on girls that might show a passion or skill for the arts. In finding those girls, strategically teaching them skills that can help them develop their talents further.” By developing their talents, the girls will have the possibility to support themselves which could lower their risk of falling back into the sex trade substantially. “We want to bring them joy and hope,”
