Présentation détaillée du projet
What are our goals?
Pintar en Bolivia is a recently established NGO in Cochabamba.
Our main goal is to improve the life and health of women in Bolivia. Most of the women we work with are from rural areas in the country and have been victims of physical, psychological and sexual violence.
By strengthening these women, we encourage them to gain confidence and self-esteem, to find their place in society, to become independant, to be strong and to raise their children.
We expect them to move their experiences forward which will eventually strengthen their children and community as well.
We aim at empowering women throuh Arts Therapy.
Psychological support is almost inexisting in Bolivia and these women have experienced things that go beyong words.
Through various forms of Arts, these women can express their feelings but also gain self-confidence, define their objectives and move on.
Lisan, the founder of the NGO, has been working with these women through painting therapies 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.
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.
The women have been really receiptive to Contemporary Dance Workshops.
Dance is a good way to work on different problematics with the ladies.
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.
We have created this KALLPA project (meaning strengh in Quechua, the most spoken indigeneous language) in order to keep empowering women.
We need to be able to keep giving the different Arts therapies, workshops and organising the women days to raise awareness of women violence in Bolivia.
Reaching self-esteem, and confidence is a long process for these women.
This is why we need YOU to raise this minimum amount of money to keep giving the therapies next year at the Women Shelter and Cochabamba National Hospital.
Pintar en Bolivia is also working on different Arts Therapy projects with the children oncology department of the national hospital as well as a center for seriously burnt kids.
