Healing and Learning through Art and Music

Healing can be also achieved through art and music. 

This is only one of the many amazing programs out there...

Save the Children’s new and innovative education program is called HEART: Healing and Education through the Arts brings the proven power of artistic expression – drawing, painting, music, drama, dance and more – to some of the world’s most vulnerable children. HEART is designed especially for young children in need, ages 3-14. Children struggling to grow up, trapped in the cycle of extreme poverty and limited opportunity, often compounded by trauma, like an emergency, conflict, violence, or the loss of a parent or other loved ones to HIV/AIDS. Children – some so young they can’t articulate their pain – at risk of losing hope, without ever experiencing joy.
