News / CCF Assists Society Development and Education Center NGO
CCF was approached by Society Development and Education Center (former Zapel NGO) founded in 2009 with the aim of supporting children from socially vulnerable families, particularly those with physical and mental disabilities, regarding implementation of a training program envisaging organization of a set of training courses based on art-therapy methodology including drawing, logical games, theater performing, pottery, collage and other decorative art, which will help reveal the enrolled children’s creative potential and talent, for better social integration and development.
More than 50 children (10 in each group) from socially deprived families, many of them with health problems, took part in the courses during 9 months. Apart from art classes, competitions, exhibitions and small theater performances and concerts were also organized that hampered motivation to participate and compete. The program as whole gave an excellent opportunity to socially vulnerable children to express themselves in a creative environment.
The total cost of the program is 5,000,000 AMD.
