Taller de Vida provides critical services for Afro-Colombian and Indigenous women and youth recovering from war. With MADRE support, they use art and activism to provide healing for survivors of wartime violence. They work with youth at risk of recruitment as child soldiers in Colombia's decades-long war.
Taller de Vida offers sports, art, and theater programs to help young people develop their artistic talents. What's more, participants heal from war and express themselves through acting, dance and painting. These programs help young war survivors envision—and work to create—a more peaceful world. Through art, the youth at Taller de Vida share past experiences and build a network of support for the future.
