Paint Our World is a humanitarian project dedicated to making a positive difference to the lives of underserved children.
We work to emotionally empower children who have been through trauma – this includes child sexual abuse and becoming orphaned. Our aim is to give them times that are fun, that are essentially what childhoods ought to be about. In our spaces, we work with the children in subtly therapeutic ways. In the process we hope to equip them with a better chance of becoming happy, stable adults leading purposeful lives.
We provide child-friendly, fun, imaginative spaces for the children by designing classes using tested, child sensitised art based activities. Our expressive art therapies are subtle, fun methods to teach the children safety, trust, care and the like. As we have measured, this mitigates the emotional stress commonly found in the lives of the children and in so doing translates into better self esteem and focus and facilitates the development of key skills. Our initiative involves young people and professionals to run the lessons, This model has proved to be a rewarding experience both for the professionals and younsters involved and for the children.
