Bullying is a growing problem. The Anti-Bullying programs have been too focused on fixing problems instead of building a culture of compassion and empathy. We know that empathy and compassion comes from feeling safe and loved, plus adults who respond to children's emotional needs. We need to involve the "team" around the children to create a better future.
We have digital platforms with content to create days that give quality of life, these digital solutions are available for kindergardens and primary schools - they involve parents, professionals and children towards resilience, awareness and knowledge about the universal human needs and quality of life. We inspire educators to create pro-social activities with the children. We have many stories of impact - from families having more quality time together - to neighbourhoods and communities were people have found belonging and happiness with the focus on Gleding. Children create Gleding patrols and show how little it takes to make a big difference. We also create and use physical tools like prints, books, calendars etc, courses and workshops for parents and professionals.
The feedback we get on the impact our stories have in homes, schools and nurseries are our main achievement. The empowering of children, the stories about forgiveness, friendships and pro-social behaviour is working. We have reached about 1000 schools and kindergardens, spoken for more than 200 000 children, parents and educators. Sold more than 60 000 books. Been nominated social entrepreneur of the year 2021.
We are expanding to the english speaking world and we would like to translate our tools and content to many other languages. This summer our first book Gleding was shown in a conference for The World federation of the deaf in South Korea.
