HEAL THE HOOD

We were joined by Stefan, Charton, Andr'e and Nicole to talk about the growth of their organization since its creation in 1998 and how it affects the youth within the community.

Emile Jansen of "Black Noise" created Heal the Hood in 1998. Its mission is to establish a network of young artists nationally and internationally through which jobs and new skills are created: art's products and art's related information could be distributed. Basically, they offer a platform where children learn and develop the skill of being artists. They have been behind many seminars, workshops, events, books publication in order to educate children through decades.

In most of the communities, gangsters make the law. It is important to frame the youth according to the saying"Changing minds, changing actions". Parents, principals, of different schools are opened to support this Project.

Stefan and Charton adds that they are so grateful of the Heal the Hood Project, because growing up with no jobs for them they could have end up being gangsters or in jail or just dead. They have an opportunity to make a living out the project now.

They are doing a school program on February 4, it's an outreach program to teach children how art is important and how you can make a decent living out of it if you work harder enough.


They are looking for support in order to grow the Organization more. Let's help them to expose ours children to greater HEIGHT.
