The Ragamuffin Project is an Intertnational NGO delivering Creative Arts Therapy treatment, training programmes and clinical supervision, in the UK, Russia and Cambodia. Established in the UK in 1999, Ragamuffin has been working in Cambodia since 2001 in partnership with NGO's and the statutory sector in reducing the impact of endemic trauma and mental health problems through Creative Arts & Music Therapy, Wilderness & Adventure Therapy, professional training, supervision and therapeutic retreat programmes.
Arts Therapists are professionally trained and registered clinicians. By translating real life experience into self-made Art works, the therapist enables the client to unlock and explore their inner world. Ragamuffin's Creative Arts Therapy Centre in Cambodia provides a sanctuary in which to unlock this experience and enable the person to face their fear, tell their story, express deep emotion and so find relief from symptoms, building confidence and strengthening resilience in children and families suffering from trauma and mental health.
Ragamuffin work with orphans, victims of trafficking and sexual exploitation, those living with disability and vulnerable communities struggling with poverty, domestic violence, depression and other mental health problems.
