Our Priorities

Children in El Salvador completing Zippy's Friends

Each year more than 180,000 children enrol in our Zippy’s Friends and Apple's Friends classes around the world. That’s a big number but only a small fraction of the world’s children. We see both a need and opportunity to do more to achieve our vision of a world in which the development of mental health and emotional resilience is part of life for every child – at home, at school and in the community.

We want to build the social and emotional skills of children across the entire primary school age range through well-evidenced programmes and a Whole School Approach.

Our goals for 2017 – 2019 are to:

  • Build a portfolio of complementary programmes across the full primary age range
  • Invest in and disseminate evidence to support our programmes
  • Use our programmes as a platform to promote a Whole School Approach
  • Develop sustainable, self-funding hubs of partners around the world
