ACTING MAKES YOU HAPPY !
The tragedies of their lives did not have the last word!
The children that we cradled 25 years ago in our shelters have been able to quit work in the mines and domestic violence. We have accompanied them through our nurseries, to school up to vocational training.
They were able to release their trauma. Many have today become leaders. They have developed new laws against violence (laws 348 and 118). They have transformed delinquent men into “Men of Peace”. They even work with governmental and private institutions: training in non-violence for the police and army to prevent gender violence and machismo and by teaching the pedagogy of kindness!
