At Ecotopia, an eco-village in South America, on the banks of the Amazon River, Yola created an art school for the children
( she gives there regularly lessons of painting and drawing ) and a training school in agro-ecology for the young non-working population.
Yola is invested for more than fifteen years in charity aids in the world, also while using art.
In Asia, Yola Minatchy teaches painting to the street children and to the orphans. She considers that « education and solidarity is the key
to inclusion for street children and inactive young people. And creativity gives them more confidence in their ability to build their life ».
