THINK EQUAL is a global education initiative endorsed by the UN Human Rights Office that is introducing social and emotional intelligence learning to children in early years education between the ages of 3-7years. The new subject aims to teach children universal values of compassion, empathy and respect and also key skills of critical thinking, peaceful conflict resolution, citizenship and life skills.
This global initiative launched as pilot programme across 30 schools in Botswana, with support from the Ministry of Education but is also being rolled out simultaneously across 1055 schools in 17 countries, including Canada, UK, Sri Lanka and Kenya.
REWA has been contributing towards enrolling Batswana schools in the pilot programme and seeing this momentous initiative be launched.
