social, emotional, and ethical learning for Kenyan educators working with children

Mindful African Initiative has collaborated with Emory University’s Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics to organize Social, Emotional, and Ethical Learning (SEE Learning) training for educators in Kenya. This will be the first time SEE Learning training is held in Africa. SEE Learning aims to convey a universal, non-sectarian, and science-based approach to bringing the ethical development of the whole child into education. 

SEE Learning is an education program developed at Emory University for international use with the vision of “a compassionate and ethical world for all.” SEE Learning enhances Social Emotional Learning programming with key additional components, including attention training; compassion and ethical discernment; systems thinking; and resilience and trauma-informed practice. Ultimately, SEE Learning empowers students to engage ethically as part of a global community and provides educators with the tools to support students’ wellbeing. (You can read more about SEE Learning HERE.)
