(Text in Papiamento below)

Willemstad – The participants of the Second Chance rehabilitation project have successfully completed the Chichi® workshop. This workshop was provided by Serena’s Art Factory. Afterwards, Serena Israel offered these clients of Sentro di Detenshon i Korekshon Kòrsou (SDKK) the opportunity to sign up as a painter for her Chichi® sculptures.

Project Second Chance is carried out by the Passionistas Foundation in collaboration with SDKK. The men were very happy with the Chichi® workshop and they are very grateful to be able to paint Chichi® sculptures for Serena’s Art Factory with payment in the near future. “Passionistas applauds this initiative! We consider this approach to be a sustainable addition to our project because the detainees are given the opportunity to have a job while awaiting their release from prison,” said president Evita Sanches.

From 2019 to 2020, Serena Israel had also carried out a similar project with SDKK where, after giving the Chichi® workshop, she selected a few talented and motivated clients who painted Chichi’s® for her. One of those painters has been released from prison and has temporarily worked for Serena’s Art Factory. Now he has a good job in the Netherlands.

This project was made possible thanks to Maduro & Curiel’s Bank, Active Chance Foundation, Banco di Caribe, Representation of the Netherlands in Willemstad, Fundashon Bon Intenshon, Curacao Tourist Board, Kolektivo Curacao, VIDeMI Services BV, Qredits Curacao, Guardian Group Dutch Caribbean and Vanshika Dewnani Reetu Khatri for raising individual donations in the Indian community in Curaçao.
