Darte Mais: Art for 85 children from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds

Primary tabs

The Darte Project integrates 85 children from socio-economic disadvantaged backgrounds. It is a psycho-educational project with objectives of intervention through art in the development of self-esteem and emotional and social skills.

Since 2008 the Rehabilitation department in the Community has been set up, where we work with children in the context of learning difficulties, disabilities, or other problems that may inhibit the normal development of the child. With the Darte project  we intend to reach many more children, especially those from disadvantaged social contexts. We believe that this methodology can transform ways of thinking, being and being and that is why it can change many lives for the better!

With the amount raised in this campaign, we will be able to finance: 5 Groups from disadvantaged socioeconomic contexts (each Darte Group has up to 16 children to participate in sessions weekly of 1h30 for 6 months.
