ART THERAPY PROGRAM FOR KIDS

We are excited to start the second cohort of our Art therapy program for our immigrants and refugee kids. Thank you to V4A board member Sebastian Mwangi for volunteering to talk to them and coaching basketball. We appreciate St Louis County Children Service Fund for sponsoring this program and Christ Covenant Church for providing the venue.
Part of our Art Therapy program is teaching kids African music and dance. This not only gives them a sense of identity but also is part of their health and wellness. It also brings parents closer to their kids
