Cultural Arts Training Program for Children, is a unique chance to directly support some of the most vulnerable children in the Northern Eastern districts of Sri Lanka.
The program uses an arts-based approach to provide psychosocial support for children affected by serious trauma or chronic stress. Through arts, children can be helped to process and communicate feelings related to their experiences. This program also uses arts-based creative learning methods to make education more interactive and fun in math, vocabulary, literacy, history etc.
The healing process begins when a child shares his or her memories and feelings, either verbally or through artistic expression, with a trusted and caring adult/peer. The result is a child who feels less isolated and more connected to the world, which leads to a more confident and secure child, feeling hopeful for a better future.
In the last 5 years, the HOPE program has supported more than 100 children around Northern and Eastern part of Sri Lanka.
