We support and help each child in their particular conflicts.Through the different activities we help the children to develop their own identity and to build the needed tools to face their issues.
The beneficiaries are 35 children of 7 to 15 years old from Rosario, Argentina, living in poverty and facing different problems every day. In Argentina there are 6 millions children living in this situation. These children have many basic needs unsatisfied and therefore they become socially excluded.
In this space the children have art classes and workshops of painting, drawing, theater, gaming and all kind of corporal expression. These classes are led by two psychologists who use these different disciplines to solve the kids' problems.
When children can develop their subjetivity and identity they build a confident personality to face their conflicts and face life with same tools than everyone else. They can dream, project and plan the future they want.
This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Excel file (projdoc.xls).
