Labeeb's Friends in Kuwait
• Schools and kindergartens this year 2
• Children this year 28
• Total children since launch 28
Kuwait is the second Middle Eastern country, after Jordan, where Zippy’s Friends (known in the region as Labeeb’s Friends) is being implemented. It is being run by NGO Coping, and started in just two kindergartens with 28 children. This is a new type of programme for young children in Kuwait, and both teachers and parents are keen to learn more about mental health promotion for their children, and how they can support them better.
