The group therapy consist of children of the same gender and age, who work to help express their emotions in a safe and positive environment. The program utilizes outdoor adventures to assist with an understanding of their heritage and their surroundings . This process aids children to actualize their relationship to their past experiences and helps normalize these experiences in turn promotes growth towards becoming prosperous men and women in their families and community. Due to the gender sensitivity in some of the projects , we also utilize the knowledge of elders and members of the community to assist our children.
