Heartshine offers a bespoke package of creative arts and mindfulness-based practices to provide joyful, safe and calming experiences to children & youth, aged 2-18, who experience extraordinary stress on a daily basis.

We work on a partnership-based approach to provide supplementary activities at:

  • The community level
  • The education system
  • The healthcare system for children

The activities we offer consist of:

Creative Art Therapies

ArtMusicDrama and Dance are all powerful and expressive activities that can help restore emotional equilibrium and aid participants in processing and moving forward from lived trauma experiences.

Mindfulness Based Practices

Meditation, mindfulness practices, breathing exercises and personal growth coaching all help to balance the nervous system which enables receptivity for learning and growth.

  • The Heartshine Community Champions Academy

    At the heart of our work is the intention to create awareness and earn sincere buy-in from local communities towards mental wellness outcomes at the grassroots level.

  • Early Childhood Development

    We partnered with the Bonteheuwel Early Childhood Development Forum to avail the Music Tree programme to 21 educators in the community who teach children aged 2 – 6 years.

  • Peer Community Support

    In 2024 we partnered with the Amy Foundation to serve children in the 8-12 age category. We avail a bespoke package of visual arts, mental wellness coaching, dance and counselling services as needed to support the children in a safe and joyful space.
