Where we work

Zippy’s Friends and Apple's Friends is now running in a wide variety of countries and cultures across the globe.

The original vision of our programmes was that they would be effective with all young children, regardless of race, culture or social background. Partnership for Children is delighted that, so far, this has proved to be the case, with exactly the same programmes running in cultures as diverse as Brazil and Belgium, Iceland and India.

How can a small NGO such as Partnership for Children expand Zippy’s Friends and Apple's Friends to so many countries? Only by forming partnerships with like-minded agencies across the world, who commit to deliver the programme locally. They might be a one-woman NGO or a large government department, but all have one thing in common: they share our goal of helping children to cope better with life’s difficulties, and thus to improve their mental health.
