$1,898.00 contributed of $4,000.00 goal
Australia – The Chrysalis Girls Program is a holistic counselling program that supports “at risk” adolescent girls in high schools across the Northern Rivers of N.S.W. Australia.
Through a diverse and dynamic range of modalities such as art therapy, meditation, yoga, martial arts, music and movement therapy Chrysalis has transformed and guided young women to heal through trauma and raise levels of self worth and esteem for hundreds and hundreds of disadvantaged teenage girls for over 10 years.
Issues such as sexual abuse/assault, domestic violence, self harm, substance abuse and teenage pregnancy are just some of the many issues presented by our adolescent participants and through the use of holistic prevention strategies we have a highly successful program that is deeply loved by the girls involved and the North Coast community.
In 2011 Andrew Barns generously donated a copy of ‘Heart of the Flower” to our organisation as a resource for our sexuality and self empowerment module, it has since become one of our most valuable and loved tools in helping young women feel confident, safe and proud. Chrysalis recognises education, honesty and transparency as key to supporting young women to learn to love, understand and value their bodies, minds and hearts.
Each year we hold a Chrysalis Graduation where 100 young women (aged between 12-17) will gather to share their experiences and celebrate together. This year we hope to gift 150 copies of “Heart of the Flower” to our girls as acknowledgment of their journey through trauma and adversity to wholeness and healing.
Our program relies on the generosity and care of others and is currently unfunded, any contributions are incredibly valued. All contributions received for this campaign will go directly to cover the cost of printing the books, postage and handling, and Stripe credit card charges.
