In 2013 HomeStudio launched it’s first OUTREACH programme for its very own charitable project SUMMER HEROES.
The SUMMER HEROES programme follows a curriculum that promotes creativity, therapeutic art practices and social awareness and development in children. It’s Outreach activities are specifically designed to assist NGOs or ‘good causes’ by tailoring an element of the SUMMER HEROES programme towards that cause.
Through active participation by children in these activities, we encourage them to volunteerism for goodwill by increasing their awareness of human-led movements towards positive change.
SUMMER HEROES invites children to psychologically embrace their abilities and talents through the invention of their personal superhero avatars.The approach taken by the OUTREACH programme is fundamental to SUMMER HEROES as it aims to contribute to a sense of responsibility and leadership capacity in children from an early age (6 to 10 years). In this way they move beyond imagining the good they would pursue with their ‘super’ powers and actively participate in a series of ‘good’ deeds in the real world.
Hopefully such projects and the public promotion of such projects would encourage young citizens to continue asking informative questions about the world in which they live. And to do so from an early age and at specific developmental stages in their lives.
Such projects would also encourage them to develop a sense of awareness about that world and a conviction about their positive roles, and the possibilities they can create and enact within it.
