About this project

The donation will be spend on a project with the young boys that we want to start in january 2022. We want to rebuild broken furniture, paint the walls with the help of a graffiti artist and build a couch for the living room. It is a Do-It-Yourself project and we will do it from the scratch together with the boys.

Background: The boys with their anger issues destroyed a lot of the furniture and randomly scribbled on the walls. Destroying things around them and taking drugs is a way to deal with past traumas that are parts of their biography. They usually did not learn so far to deal with the emotions that might come up. Especially boys have a hard time to get in touch with their emotions because society is still expecting them to be strong and talking about emotions is concidered to be a female attribute.

To rebuild and paint their home in our institution is a way to make them accepting the place even more as a home and seeing things that they produced can higher the level of personal selfesteem. On the long run it makes them wanting to rebuild themselves and creates a feeling of belonging somewhere. It also strengthens the relationships between the boys in their home. That is a first step to become a part of the socity and starting a major change.
