Dom Bosco Special Training Centers

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

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 – August

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

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?
