EU Funding Goals

We would like to focus on building a network, learning, and participating as a partner in projects.

Our area of expertise is children's mental wellbeing from ages 7-12. We are leaders in the ed-tech sector an want to extend our reach to Europe.


Global organizations like the OECD, UNICEF, and the World Bank all call for increasing focus and investment in the childhood, with the belief that investment in this period yields high returns. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are traumatic events that occur in childhood that have lasting impacts into adulthood. ACEs are directly correlated with a children’s learning, social connections, and problem-solving ability.

We are an award winning not for profit that have developed an evidence-led, age appropriate, Children's Mental Wellbeing program for primary school teachers to gain the skills to teach the program to the children in their classrooms, prioritising their children's mental wellbeing and cultivating resilience.
