At our first session with Uplift Academy, co-founders of the Barat Foundation Chandri and Gary Barat along with Steve Mintz, Director of High School NGO Connect, presented the International Animodule program to the students at Uplift, their teacher Ms. Harris, and the Director of Opportunity Mr. Comesanas.
During this first session several videos, found on the creation nation website: www.creationnation.org were shown to introduce the students to Animodules and to the annual Creation Nation Art & Peace Parade. Students were also introduced to the Imafon School in Nigeria, their international partner on the project.
In 1997 the Barats founded the Barat Foundation, a not for profit educational corporation dedicated to expanding creative opportunities through immersion programs designed to maximize artistic and intellectual achievement and personal growth.
