Hello, we are Pluma Poetica del Arte (Poetic Pen of Art), a non-profit organization based in New York City that promotes art and culture. Our mission is to instill arts in children from an early age. We’ve seen the troublesome increase of bullying in our schools and the traces it leaves on children. We believe that art is the most effective tool to solve the problem. Therefore, we’ve created the Anti-Bullying Program to help victims of harassment to overcome their traumas through art.

For more than three years, we’ve supported children and young people between 7 and 14 years old and their families to overcome the traumas of bullying through this program, which consists of writing stories about intimidation, acquiring reading habits, and preserving the mother tongue. Writing allows them to express their feelings of sadness and fear and helps to strengthen their self-esteem, develop their creativity, and have an outlet to report the abuses. In addition, they learn Taekwondo, painting, dance, and crafts.

Taekwondo helps children to discipline themselves, strengthens their minds and bodies, teaches them personal defense, improves their self-esteem, and contributes to their overall health and fitness. Painting, dance, and crafts help to eliminate stress and depression in children and make them feel that they matter.

The program takes place on Saturdays from 1 to 6 PM for a period of six months and culminates with the publication of an anthology written by the children.

We want to keep the Anti-Bullying Program in force, but without your help, it won’t be possible, because we don’t have the necessary funds to support it.

If you are concerned about the suffering of children, please help us to erase the trace of bullying.

Your contribution allows children to have access to: support materials, qualified trainers, psychological guidance, refreshments, and a book from their authorship. You will be part of an outstanding program that helps stop bullying and intimidation and may indeed save a child's life.

Please help us reach more people. Spread the word! Share this link in your social networks.

Hola, somos Pluma Poética del Arte, una organización sin fines de lucro radicada en la Ciudad de Nueva York, que fomenta el Arte y la Cultura y cuya misión es inculcar el arte en los niños desde temprana edad. Hemos visto con preocupación el aumento del bullying en nuestras escuelas y las huellas que deja en los niños. Creemos que el Arte es el arma más efectiva para resolver el problema. Por tanto, creamos el Programa Anti-Bullying, cuyo propósito es ayudar a las víctimas de acoso a superar sus traumas por medio del arte.

Por más de tres años hemos apoyado a niños y jóvenes entre 7 y 14 años de edad y a sus familias a superar los traumas del acoso a través de nuestro Programa Anti-Bullying, que consiste en escribir historias de intimidación adquirir hábitos de lectura y preservar la lengua materna, entre otros. La escritura les permite expresar sus sentimientos de tristeza y miedo, y les ayuda a fortalecer su amor propio o autoestima, desarrollar la imaginación, la creatividad y denunciar el abuso. Además, aprenden Taekwondo, a pintar, a bailar y a hacer manualidades.

El Taekwondo: Les ayuda a disciplinarse, les fortalece la mente y el cuerpo, les enseña defensa personal, mejora su autoestima y les ayuda a combatir el sobrepeso. La Pintura, las Manualidades y el Baile, les ayudan a eliminar el estrés y la depresión y los hace sentir importantes.

El programa se desarrolla los sábados de 1 a 6 PM por un periodo de seis meses y culmina con la publicación de una antología escrita por los niños.

Queremos mantener vigente el Programa Anti-Bullying, pero sin su ayuda no será posible debido a que no contamos con los fondos necesarios para sostenerlo.

Si a usted le preocupa el sufrimiento de los niños, por favor ayúdenos a borrar la huella del bullying.

Su contribución permite que los niños tengan acceso a: materiales de apoyo, entrenadores capacitados, orientación psicológica, refrigerio y un libro de su autoría. Más importante aún, usted puede ser parte del programa y salvar la vida de un niño, su donación ayudará a detener el bullying o intimidación.
