Success Story
  • A 12-year-old participant in a PSS/Arts session. Struggling with the impact of conflict, she found comfort in painting sessions. Through lively artworks, she not only navigated her emotions but also became a source of creativity for her peers. Her journey reflects the transformative power of PSS and arts, turning difficulty into an opportunity for self-discovery and communal healing.
  • In a community indicated by diversity, a children's solidarity revealed, bringing together children from different backgrounds. Among them was a shy 10-year-old who, through the project's inclusive activities, discovered the joy of collaboration. As the children worked side by side on art projects and shared stories, bonds of friendship strengthened. His new belief and the cooperative spirit of unity became a demonstration of the transformative effect of encouraging solidarity among children, proving that, together, they could paint a brighter future for their community.
