BENEFITING: Save the Children
HEART (Healing and Education Through the Arts) provides psychosocial support for thousands of children who have fled conflict and violence in South Sudan and are now living in refugee camps in northern Uganda. Many of these boys and girls made the treacherous journey to the camps without their parents. HEART uses the arts to help kids process and communicate their feelings related to their traumatic experiences, which helps them feel safe, less isolated and connected to their peers. HEART also uses arts-based creative learning methods to make education more fun and interactive in math, vocabulary, literacy, history and other subject areas.
