A NEW SHELTER FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH IN NEED IN OSLO

“Can I stay with you if something happens at home?”

Only then did I understand the seriousness of the family situation at the child’s home. I became paralyzed. For many years. But the question from the child has consumed me for years.

Today I collect money, also on the occasion of my 40 years day, for better late than never. The project I have called Shanty (which means protection / shelter or peace).

“Shanty” becomes a new offering in Oslo for vulnerable children and young people with problematic family relationships.

SHANTY

This project will be an activity house and a 24-hour shelter with a competent team that welcomes children and young people. Shanty will serve as a safe “extra home” with the main focus on preventive work for physical, emotional and psychological abuse against children and adolescents.

In collaboration with Kafésynk, the stage for Latin American music, the children will have their own small concerts, music, and dance workshops. The children learn to express their own voice through creative arts, based on the child’s interest, inner talent and emotions. Children can participate in weekly activities with local artists or project-based projects with visiting artists.

The vision is to strengthen the communication skills of the child and the youth, in order to better avoid tragic situations in the future both at home and in society.

DISSTRESSED BUT PARALIZED

How can we help a child with physical or mental violence and domestic abuse?

And how can we help children who do not have visible traces of abuse?

There are also many children and adolescents who grow up with mentally ill parents. These children are difficult to “detect” and grow up in today’s society as “invisible children”.

Norwegian Church Aid and the Children’s Welfare organization signal concern for children and young people living in homes with parents who drink, beat, rape or ignore normal child care. One study shows that only one in three children who call via SOS phone – actually get help.

The isolation in Corona epidemic, may have reinforced already critical family relationships.

I have developed a project, based on observations and experiences, which can be a highly relevant measure for today’s situation.

Now you have the opportunity to help.
