Colouring Dreams

Creating an environment for children to dream

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Colouring Dreams is a personal development experience in a series of 8 workshops designed to motivate, inspire and build confidence in children from 4 to 12 years old who are facing emotional and physically challenging circumstances.

The program’s methodology allows the children to express their emotions and discover their talents through art therapy, music, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques. Through art therapy, the children envisage and draw their dreams on a pair of white pyjamas. House to Grow pyjamas are used as a metaphorical anchor, connecting the children permanently with a colourful future. This program encourages them to keep on dreaming and hold onto their innocence in the face of difficulties.
