“Our driving force is to help children and young people looking for support for the plans they have for their own lives.”
Young people from financially disadvantaged families rarely have access to resources in the areas of educational support, creative and physical work. Creative activities are not a regular part of primary care and are thus hardly ever included in basic services. If children from financially disadvantaged backgrounds find themselves in an acute crisis, they rarely receive effective assistance or outside help due to their unfavorable circumstances. So these young people quickly go on a downward spiral and remain far below their potential in their further development.
The work of Moving Child starts where children lack essential resources. Our primary concern is to promote basic health care, education and training. In addition, we offer children a chance to playfully and experimentally relate to themselves and the world around them through exercise, music, and art. They gain new experiences so as to broaden their horizons cognitively, physically, and emotionally. This helps them to engage with other people and experience relationships and bonding. Supporting children and young people in developing self-confidence and self-determination in a balanced way is a matter close to our hearts and the motivation for our foundation’s work.
