Economic Development

 

As a result of the strong relationship Vickie built with the top national artists of Uganda, she organized a campaign to bring paintings created in Africa to Texas in order to sell them and support the careers of those artists.  This initiative was very successful in helping the Ugandan artists earn money to support their families.  In addition, she helped the Ugandan artists learn new ways to market their work in their own country. 

In Hoedspruit, South Africa, a group of young artists were trained by Vickie in weekly classes to not only create beautiful paintings but begin to show and sell their work in local markets. Down the road at a local citrus plantation, aspiring artists were equipped by Vickie create souvenirs using natural products that could then be sold to visiting tourists.
