“The Mondo Art Project has been able to connect refugee youth in South Salt Lake to the homes they left behind. It has been incredible to watch the refugee youth get excited to share their stories with kids across the world and already have an understanding of what their life might be like, even if it is somewhere they have never been. It is a unique experience for them to receive art from other kids who are also from another part of the world.” – Julia Rametta, Youthlinc Local Service Director
“My favorite activity at Real Life was the Mondo Art Project. It was really great to create works of art with the refugee teens, knowing that our creations would be traveling around the world, many back to their home countries. Having the opportunity to participate in the project at home made it even better when I was able to recreate the same project with kids in Kenya. I love the communication and understanding that is conveyed through just one picture.” –Cameron, 2013 Real Life Participant
