ZIPPY’S FRIENDS IN ASSOCIATION WITH DIGICEL FOUNDATION
Zippy’s Friends is an emotional literacy programme for children between the ages of 5-8 years old. Digicel Foundation partnered with the School Leadership Centre of Trinidad and Tobago to implement Zippy’s Friends in 37 primary schools in 2013-2014.
Zippy and his friends encourage the children to come up to solutions for everyday problems that they may encounter. The programme explores topics in Feelings, Communication, Bullying, Conflict Resolution, Making & Breaking Relationships, Dealing with Change and Loss & Coping.
The programme is now being expanded to include 20 more schools, and will include a parenting component for all 57 schools in this new academic year 2014-2015.
