Zippy launches in Palestine

By : PFC   Oct 16, 2018

In August 2018 our Programme Director Caroline went out to Palestine to visit the NGO Engage, our newest partner. Labeeb’s Friends, the Arabic version of Zippy's Friends, will soon be introduce to hundreds of Palestinian children across the West Bank, supporting them to cope with the stresses and difficulties of life. 

As well as meeting with our partners at Engage, Caroline met with several government ministers and took part in a conference on Social and Emotional Learning that was streamed live on Palestinian TV.

Engage have very ambitious plans for Labeeb’s Friends hoping to reach 4000 teachers over the next five years as well as ideas to promote social and emotional learning to teachers, In universities and to parents.

We are excited that more children across the world will be helped to develop healthy coping strategies and techniques to improve their mental wellbeing.
