Hope for Life Project - Phase II (2024)

For this fourth Season project, the target is to implement a mental diseases conscientious action in at least 1,400 students between 7 and 17 years old through Integrative Actions / Psychologist. The Program consists of 3 parts:

Help for Life Program: as made previously in the Help for Life Program season 1, 2, and 3. We aim to help 5 schools / 750 students between 11 and 17 years old.

Help for Life Phase II: introducing inside the school new methodology and practices, helping 2 schools / 500 students between 11 and 17 years old.

Help for Life Pre Phase: we intend to bring YOGA activity as a strong tool against the mental disorder for children, helping 2 schools / 150 students between 7 and 10 years old.

We believe we need to give students the opportunity for a new education, the one that teaches them, beyond the outside knowledge, the self-knowledge, so that they can develop a greater reflection on values, and feelings, so they can build for themselves tools that help them deal with the adversities and impasses of life.

It is important that they learn, relearn, reframe their thoughts, and find new ways out of their frustrations, identifying themselves with competing less and sharing more.

These new tools for dealing with life are seeds that must be added through new content, more humanized and focused on freedom of thought, ethical values, and student autonomy.

We understand that such education will be able to teach them to be opinion-makers and not passive subjects in the face of ready-made opinions that, often, contribute to their mental illness.

This is what the world urgently asks for, this is what will gradually stop the rising rate of depression and suicide, which has been alarmingly increasing among young people under 16 and that will certainly reverberate in all aspects of our society, whether in the ecosystem, in the financial and, political systems, as well as in the realm of conscience and moral values.

Such seeds should be planted as soon as possible in schools, where children and young people spend a huge amount of time in their lives, during their psychic and emotional development and they will be the ones that, through a new, more conscious, constructive and humanized look will be able to change the course of our history, contributing to a more sustainable and balanced life.

It aims to propose to schools that, in addition to transmitting content, they humanize education according to their resources, activities, and practices, working the student’s emotions and strengthening them so that they can be seen as integral beings and can balance the mind, body, and their essence. So, we hope that this Program will reach not only the students but also their families and the entire faculty.
