Pintar en Bolivia - KALLPA project

<p><u><strong>What are our goals?</strong></u></p><p>Pintar en Bolivia is a recently established NGO in Cochabamba.&nbsp;</p><p><br />Our main goal is to&nbsp;<strong>improve the life and health of women</strong>&nbsp;in Bolivia. Most of the women we work with are from rural areas in the country and have been v<em>ictims of physical, psychological and sexual violence.</em><br />By strengthening&nbsp;these women, we encourage them to gain <strong>confidence </strong>and <strong>self-esteem</strong>, to <strong>find their place </strong>in society, to become <strong>independant</strong>, to be <strong>strong</strong> and to <strong>raise</strong> their children.<br />We expect them to move their experiences forward which will eventually strengthen their children and community as well.&nbsp;</p><p><img width="100%" alt="" src="" /></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><u><strong>Arts Therapy</strong>&nbsp;</u></p><p>We aim at empowering women throuh <em>Arts Therapy</em>.&nbsp;<br />Psychological support is almost inexisting in Bolivia and these women have experienced things that go beyong words.&nbsp;<br />Through various forms of Arts, these women can <em>express their feelings</em> but also gain <em>self-confidence</em>, define their <em>objectives</em> and <em>move on</em>.&nbsp;</p><p>Lisan, the founder of the NGO, has been working with these women through painting therapies&nbsp;for over a year and the results are being amazing. This process goes from expressing their feelings, to gaining self-confidence and imagining a future.&nbsp;</p><p><img width="100%" alt="" src="" /></p><p>Pintar has also been welcoming a few volunteers from all around the world to give different kind of Arts workshops such a music or dance.&nbsp;</p><p>The women have been really receiptive to Contemporary Dance Workshops.&nbsp;<br /><br />Dance is a good way to work on different problematics with the ladies.&nbsp;<br />They learn how to express feelings and tell a story through their body. But also, they learn how to work together and to create a community between them.&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><img width="100%" alt="" src="" /></p><p><u><strong>KALLPA Project</strong></u></p><p>We have created this <em>KALLPA projec</em>t (meaning strengh in Quechua, the most spoken indigeneous language) in order to keep <strong>empowering women.</strong></p><p>We need to be able to keep giving the different Arts therapies, workshops and organising&nbsp;the women days to <strong>raise awareness </strong>of women violence in Bolivia.&nbsp;</p><p>Reaching self-esteem, and confidence is <strong>a long process</strong> for these women.</p><p>This is why we need <strong>YOU&nbsp;</strong>&nbsp;to raise this minimum amount of money to keep giving the therapies next year at the Women Shelter and Cochabamba National Hospital.&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><u><strong>Other projects</strong></u></p><p>Pintar en Bolivia is also working on different Arts Therapy projects with the <strong>children oncology department</strong> of the national hospital as well as a center for <strong>seriously burnt kids</strong>.<br />If you want to learn more about these other projects, you can check our website:&nbsp;<a target="_blank" href="">our website</a></p><p><img width="100%" alt="" src="" /></p><p><u><strong>Discover our dream team</strong></u></p><p><img width="100%" alt="" src="" /></p><p><img width="100%" alt="" src="" /></p>
