THINK EQUAL is a global education initiative with a mission to ensure that Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) becomes a compulsory subject for all children in the early years’ (3-6 year-olds) globally. SEL is the process through which knowledge, attitudes, values and skills such as emotional intelligence, empathy, self-awareness, self-regulation, social awareness, gender equality, environmental stewardship, relationship skills and responsible decision making are developed. SEL helps young people to:
- build and maintain psychological resources;
- know themselves and their emotions and to engage in positive relationships;
- make good decisions, behave ethically and responsibly;
- learn self-regulation and avoid negative behaviours;
- undo gender stereotypes and be gender equal;
- have self-worth, confidence and the right to voice and agency; and
- transition into ambitious and empowered young adults.
To support educators and governments to achieve this mission, THINK EQUAL has developed a global SEL Programme for 3-6 years-olds. The Programme is constructed around narrative children’s books, lesson plans and teaching resources which provide the concrete tools educators need to teach SEL in a low-cost and adaptable format.
The THINK EQUAL Programme has been implemented in 17 countries across six continents and is evidence-based. There is a growing demand from other countries for the THINK EQUAL Programme and the organisation is now strengthening its team to be able to respond to this demand.
