We are facing a global mental health crisis with 1 billion adults, 1 in 5 teachers and 166 million children experiencing mental disorders. (UNICEF, WHO, 2021) This is worsened by limited access and diversity in available tools for 6 billion asian and black people.
Traditional modes of teaching in this VUCA world leave children unprepared to navigate unprecedented global challenges and individual stress. Most national curriculum frameworks stifle the innate talents of children and as the late Sir Ken Robinson said, “schools kill creativity.”
Ongoing racial discrimination around the world is evident that access to culturally tolerant educational technology is grossly insufficient and opportunities for positive representation of underserved communities in every sphere of society is vital in reshaping self-identify and global narratives, particularly about black and asian people.
We believe in a world where Everyone Discovers Ubiquitous Seeds of Infinite Love through access to mental wellbeing programmes.
We address the global mental health crisis through culturally responsive, trauma-informed community arts, youth leadership and wellbeing programmes and products particularly for underserved, vulnerable children and adults.
We Learn together through inquiry, reflection and commitment by practicing what we teach.
We Love ourselves and each other through listening, respect and compassionate thoughts, words and actions.
We enLighten ourselves and each other with honesty, humour and hope when facing challenges together.
We engage with Empathy by connecting with the challenges, suffering and needs of our communities.
We ensure Equity with a social enterprise model that addresses access needs of underserved communities.
We deliver Excellence in our programmes and products through participant feedback and mental health metrics.
