ART AID FOR KENYA NOW"In Kenya, an estimated three million, mostly poor, people live with intellectual and mental disabilities, according to NGO and United Nations figures. At the same time, the ratio of psychiatrists to the population is dismal -- just one psychiatrist to half a million people."
Those who have survives the many terrorist attacks in the last two years need care now! Through training local caregivers how to use simple art therapy activities, they can offer counseling anywhere, anytime with the simple tools of crayon and paper.
With your help ART AID for KENYA will put together art kits and training books to be given to all those who attend training workshops. They in turn, will return to their villages and begin their own art therapy counseling program and train others in their communities.
