Self-esteem and Healthy Living Habits program

11 November 2021

The Foundation offers these young people the opportunity to live positive experiences that are conducive to the development of their self-confidence.

The young people of the DYP are affected by extreme emotional, psychological, or physical suffering. The traumatic experiences they endured during childhood and adolescence can often shatter their self-esteem. The activities offered awaken new interests and passions, while giving young people the opportunity for self-discovery and the creation of their own identity.

This year, we have spent close to $150,000 to help youths in care build self-esteem and adopt healthy lifestyle habits

The Self-esteem and Healthy Living Habits Program in action:

  • Purchase of sports and artistic equipment
  • Registration for community sports activities
  • Registration for summer camps and day camps
  • Creation of reading corners

The Foundation promotes the personal development of young people

Thanks to the Foundation’s generosity, children training once or twice a week were visited by a karate master. Their skills increased, allowing them to earn their yellow belts. They received a kimono, a t-shirt and a diploma as gifts.rnrnThere is no need to tell you how proud they are! Thank you for your support.
