Art for Inclusion
Red Oak launched a project entitled “Art for Inclusion” in partnership with Terre des Hommes Italia and under the action “Promotion of Child Protection activities in Mount Lebanon and Baalbeck and Hermel governorates”, funded by UNICEF in the intervention areas of North Bekaa and Mount Lebanon.
As part of the project, Red Oak implemented FPSS sessions, case management, and a QUDWA initiative with the aim of encouraging positive behaviors and promote wellbeing, dignity, and equality. More specifically, as part of the initiative, Red Oak is working with children with disabilities and children at risk of physical or mental abuse.
The sessions compromise awareness-raising sessions practical sessions focusing on theater and circus art. The combination of the components ensured that the children have the necessary skills and tools to excel in their lives and act as influencers and inspire other children to be role models in their communities.
Red Oak launched a social media campaign through videos that highlight the success and progress made by the children. This campaign is a tool to inspire change in other children and promote acceptance and inclusion.
