Challenge

Venezuela is currently facing the biggest socio-economical crisis of its history, and our kids come from Petare, one of Latin America's biggest slums. They are exposed daily to crime and insecurity, suffering not only economic but also affective shortcomings. These children are at risk of leaving school to try to find jobs that may help sustain their homes, or even getting involved in crime, because they feel like it's the only option they have when education has lost its value.

Solution

Art practice helps children develop across many domains, such as cognitive, emotional and social. Kids receive formation in music, theater, dancing, drawing and painting, older kids work on Model United Nations, and tutors are available at all times to make sure they have a better performance at school. Workshops are held Wednesdays and Fridays every afternoon on our headquarters, the course has the same duration of the school year and we have specialized teachers in each discipline.

Long-Term Impact

Yearly we educate over 140 kids, providing new opportunities for them and giving them a broader vision of the world; teaching them how to aspire, making life better not only for them, but also for their families and all of our society. We help kids receive scholarships and receive the best opportunities to professionalize. Our compromise is raising the cultural level of youth, promoting the generation of civic values, improving quality of life and providing spaces for social integration.
