OUR STORY

Our communities thoughts

"THE COSMOGOLEM PROVIDES ALL OF US THE HUGE OPPORTUNITY TO HOPE AND DREAM"

Jeanne Devos

National Domestic Workers Movement, Mumbai, India

"FROM THE MOMENT I HEARED ABOUT THE COSMOGOLEM, I SAW IT'S GREAT POTENTIAL. IT SHARED THE SAME VALUES OF MY WORK TO EMPOWER CHILDREN TO LET GO OF THE PAST AND RECLAIM THEIR POWER"

Chido Govera

Founder of the Future of Hope Foundation, Zimbabwe

"OUR GOLEM IS FILLED WITH SORROW, BUT HE IS ALSO A POWERFUL SIGN OF HOPE. THE CHILDREN THROW THINGS IN THE HATCH BECAUSE THEY WANT TO GO AHEAD AND STOP THE TORMENTATION FROM THEIR TRAUMAS. "

Prof. Dr. Peter Adriaenssens

Psychiatrist

Vertrouwenscentrum, Belgium

"HUMAN RIGHTS ARE THE DNA OF LIFE. THE COSMOGOLEM IS FOR ME THE EXTERNALIZATION THROUGH ART AND DEEPLY EMBEDDED IN MY SOUL"
