We want to offer Projecto Darte to 16 kids from deprived contexts in Lisbon. In this weekly art as therapy sessions they will be developing their self-esteem, self-confidence, social and emotional skills.
This campaign aims to offer Projecto Darte to 16 kids from deprived contexts in Lisbon - Bairro do Armador in Chelas and Bairro 6 de Maio in Damaia.
Projecto Darte is a psycho-educational, not-for-proffit intervention that uses an innovative art as therapy method in Portugal to work with young people aged 5 to 16. This method uses the artisic creation to promote the development of the self-esteem, self-confidence, emotional skills and social skills of its beneficiaries.
Since 2013, we have already reached more than 350 kids in Lisbon and the Azores (Terceira Island). Over the next years we wish to reach many more, in different areas of Portugal. We strongly believe that what we do can positively transform ways of Thinking and Being and therefore improve many lives.
The amount raised will offer 20 Darte Sessions to 16 kids:
- 1 Darte Group in Bairro 6 de Maio, Damaia. The 8 participants will be selected by the Centro Social 6 de Maio, where we have been working since 2014. The group will participate in weekly 1h30 sessions in Term 3 of this school year (April-June 2018).
- 1 Darte Group in Bairro do Armador, Chelas. The 8 participants will be selected by the Associação Futuro Autónomo, where we have been working since 2013. The group will participate in weekly 1h30 sessions in Term 3 of this school year (April-June 2018).
Join our cause and help us painting big smiles in the faces of this 16 kids!
