Millennium Fellowship Project: Art Therapy Youth Hangout

The project employs art therapy as a means of addressing mental health. It happens in conjunction with AIESEC and Q-initiative. It mostly involves youth coming together over the weekend for an art therapy hangout, with a therapist in tow who helps channel feelings into art. On average, it attracts 45 youth every weekend and we hope to get to 100 youth per week by mid next year.
