Dear me, pastel Association’s project in February 2023, was about confusion and uncertainty that define adolescence, this important stage in the life of a human being, and about how we can, through precise actions, to increase self-esteem and the understanding of oneself when it comes to high school students.
The problem: In Romania, 7 out of 10 young people have a low self-esteem and would prefer school to get involved in offering information about diversity, about the fact that it is ok to be different and not be perfect.
The solution: To give students from Școala Centrală in Bucharest an one-hour workshop held by a psychotherapist. She would talk about adolescence, about the risks and opportunities of this period and about how can someone choose a path or how he wants to be like, acquiring, at the same time, a better understanding of the world and of oneself.
Partners: This project was entirely supported by our Association.
What we did with the help of the partners, donors and trough the channels that we involved in the promotion of this project:
“It was really interesting, and it made me think about my future” was our favourite feedback because what we wanted the most was to plant a seed of trust but also to make teenagers look inside themselves and to question their own coping mechanisms.
