MADRE Sends Support to Taller de Vida

Thanks to the generous support of people like you, MADRE recently sent support to our partners at Taller de Vida for their lifesaving programs with former child soldiers.

With this support, Taller de Vida will be able to continue providing psychosocial counseling and educational training to Colombia’s Afro-descendant and Indigenous youth who are affected by Colombia’s armed conflict. Taller de Vida will also continue running their art therapy program, where young girls and boys displaced by war and poverty can participate in theater, dance, capoeira and photography classes as a means of expressing their feelings and frustrations through creative outlets. With your support, these youth are developing their self-expression and their talents in the art, and working together to envision and create a culture of peace.

Thank you for supporting this important project!
