2023-2024 CPP Beneficiary


Founded in November 2012, the Rock-Paper-Scissors Children’s Fund was established by Sara Stevens Nerone and her two daughters, Sophie and Phoebe Nerone. After teaching art and violin lessons at a local orphanage in Vietnam, the Nerone family came back to the United States and founded Rock-Paper-Scissors Children’s Fund in order to provide ample resources and education to continue teaching the arts to underprivileged children in Vietnam.
