Programs: Newest initiative is ArtReach Haiti. The initiative provides psycho-social training for teachers and NGO workers. Our initial program 2000-2004 was ArtReach Bosnia - A five-year commitment which established a fully integrated, nationwide, expressive arts program that benefitted children of trauma. ArtReach Bosnia provided psycho-social training for 492 Bosnian teachers and was administered in the regions of Sarajevo, Gorazde, Tuzla and Brcko District. In addition, a "train the trainers" program was also established which encouraged sustainability. In the first years of operation, over 275,000 children and teachers in Bosnia benefited from experiencing ArtReach programs and worked towards recovery from their deep wounds. The workshops provide training in how to use creative activities within a program known as the ArtReach Model, building hope, empowerment and wellbeing to ultimately help break the cycle of violence and envision the possibility of peace and safety.
