Art Helps an Orphan Tell Her Story

Rinky is ten years old and lives in a shelter for girls rescued from difficult situations in slums around the city. She participated in one of our half-day workshops for at-risk girls. The girls were guided to create art work on the topic of love and then somehow use their pictures to tell their stories. While sharing her art and her story, Rinky burst into tears. The other girls from the shelter gathered around her and comforted her with hugs. This was a moment of honesty, empathy and connection. Art has the power to help the marginalized heal from difficult experiences.
