Our intention is to create a 'Safe Haven' for the youth, a place they can go to and be themselves completely, where they will have necessary support to explore their own abilities in their own time, without fear of judgement or discrimination, where they can meet and interact with a diverse range of other cultures with the potential to learn from each other in the process. This will be done by means of: Creating indoor and outdoor spaces specifically for this purpose. Organizing workshops - art, music, horticulture, self-awareness, self-sustainability, and more. Organizing community 'Clean up/resurrection' projects involving both youth and adult members of the community. Providing the necessary support required in order to assist all members on the journey of 'finding their place in society', for them to be able to explore the many different options available before deciding on their chosen paths.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Our project is a brand new idea, something that has not been tried before. Our aim is to provide the youth with the necessary tools to build and allow them to create our future. The old ways are crumbling, they're not working anymore, this is evident now, more so than ever. It’s time for change; for a step forward in evolution! We need to allow our children to be that change
Steps to get it done:
The key to the future is within our children, all we have to do, is encourage and build with them. Embrace the magic they are blessed with, know that their abilities are a divine gift. A gift we should treasure, shower their uniqueness with pleasure. Do not become their oppressor. your childs abilities will guide you through life, through the warmest days, and darkest nights, they will be at your side, and will help you to fight. Never underestimate their abilities, they are more clued on than they seem to be. they see everything we refuse to see. Allow them to become everything we as a species failed to be. in their minds, we plant the seeds, as they grow, we water and feed, they will show you what they need, just teach them well, and let them lead. Teach them love, respect, and gratitude, teach them manners, and not to be rude, teach them life will reflect their attitude.. "do all you can to ensure they elevate higher"
