This week I started the Encounters Project in the Dom Bosco Special Training Centers in Odxel, Goa. This is a very special place runned by Salesianos in a wonderful location in the cost. Among many other things this center have school classes for migrant children, street children and from low socio-ecomic families: these children came from migrant families that often change place searching for work special in construction. In the classroom most of the time it’s really difficult to grab their attention, but painting it really have worked as art therapy!

Eva or Lina in Pais e Filhos Magazine – AugustEva ou Lina na Pais e Filhos – Agosto

In the Magazine Pais e Filhos from Portugal I got a space talking about Eva with a picture of my myself with Lina, the girl that I photographed to be Eva in the book. Unfortunately the mozambican orphanage where I met her have just closed, so I started the search for Lina to hand in the promised book. Will I be able to find her?
Na Revista Pais e Filhos de Agosto saiu uma pequena peça sobre a Eva, com uma fotografia minha com a Lina que emprestou a rosto à personagem do livro. Infelizmente o orfanato moçambicano onde conheci esta menina fechou e agora começou a procura da Lina para lhe entregar o prometido livro com a sua homónima de vida.
