Program Details

We opened a kids workshop month ago. With this workshop we want to change the thinking of kids who are coming from the quarry and the slums, who have been working there to get the basic needs like food. We want to stop the spiral of generations who are working in the quarry. We are happy about every input you can bring in our open project and it will be highly appreciated.


Activities & Shift

Having fun with the kids during the art lessons, visiting the quarry and slums to documenting childworkers, mentorship sessions, visiting schools
