There can be no development without personal development:
Therapeutic programmes to be free from slavery and build up consciousness and confidence.
Children who have worked in the mines are deeply traumatized. It would be foolish to try to educate them before they have been helped to rid themselves of the fears experienced in the mines. They have often practically lost their ability to speak and to approach other people. Artistic expression is the first essential step towards the rehabilitation of those who have suffered most.
Freedom from past trauma helps them gradually regain the necessary openness to education, training and the rediscovery of their true cultural roots.
Singing workshops: to express oneâ€™s inner identity, develop creative potential and, leaving behind the realms of despair, to join in a joyful song with others.
Manufacture of traditional instruments.
Folkloric Group of traditional music and dance.
Painting workshops: Most of the children only draw in black : the mines, the galleries, the Cerro Rico, before they become able to take up the colours of daylight.
Water therapy or Watsu in thermal swimming pools: by working on movement and relaxation in the water, they can leave all their traumatic memories at the bottom of the poolâ€¦
Holistic development and therapies adapted to each oneâ€™s traumatismâ€¦
Everything possible is done to achieve the autonomy of the child while respecting everyoneâ€™s differences in personality so as to enable them to be aware of their talents as well as those of the others.
No project can be sustainable without it being anchored in cultural and spiritual values.
