Our projet combines art and group work to fight social exclusion and promote autonomy. It focuses on individual capacities, skills development and life stability.
The Laços Sem Nós Association needs financial support to increment his occupational workshop (sewing and handicrafts) for different socially excluded people of all ages, that includes for example sewing machine training, patchwork classes, knitting basics. It still works positive values and beahviours. We also want to start music therapy to help people deal with difficult feelings and better connect to others, showing promises for improving personal growth and autonomy.
