Disaster and Emergency Program
Through the Disaster and Emergency Program, we provide art therapy-based psychosocial support for children, youth, and adults directly or indirectly affected by disasters to enhance individual coping skills and be better prepared for disasters. In addition to these activities, we conduct capacity building trainings to support and strengthen the equipment of individuals and institutions for disaster and emergency situations in order to expand psychosocial support services before disasters and emergencies.

child & young
Support children who need psychosocial support through regular or one-time donations. Your donation will allow children to attend individual and group therapy sessions and to build happy moments, not trauma, in their lives.
Our volunteers share the same dream of a better world and help us lead the way. Their support is invaluable as they join us in our pursuit of reaching more children and creating more impact. Join us and be part of the change for better.
