It all started with an email that Ms. Kelly McBrien, NAHS advisor, received nine years ago.
The email, from an organization called the Memory Project, asked a simple question: Would the small group of Red Lion NAHS students be interested in drawing some portraits?
The subjects of the portraits were orphans from all over the world. The drawings quickly became known as ‘Porphans.’
Over the years, photographs of orphans have come to Red Lion from several third-world countries, such as Bolivia, Madagascar, Haiti or Cambodia. This semester, NAHS members are drawing children from Colombia.
