Our mission for 2030:

"Every child between 8-13 years old from an underprivileged community in South Africa, has grown their resilience, confidence and emotional awareness through normalizing mental health conversations through locally educated role models/facilitators by the use of strength -and evidence-based tools."

OUR VISION

We want to create an ‘army’ of mental health coaches by educating locals.

 

These mental health coaches will be the spokesperson within their community, to make sure that every child (and parent) has someone they can turn to. 

BENEFITS FOR THE CHILDREN

Our mission is to get mentally stronger children, that are ready to face challenges and know where to turn to for help.

 

Our little lions will grow their emotional awareness, build their confidence and learn about resilience. 

VALUES
Little Lions wants to create an easily accessible and safe place for children to learn about their mental health.

This is why we come to the children, go where they go, and make sure that we reach every child.

As Little Lions, we believe in the importance of mental health awareness.

We believe that it is better to prevent than to cure.

We believe that children from a young age should be taught about mental health.

And we believe that mental health conversations have to be normalized.

PERSONALITY

We focus on the positive, rather than the negative. Let’s build resilience, since we cannot take away the risks that a child has to face in their life. 

We believe in empowerment of the locals. We use the experience and knowledge of local role-models to make this a community-driven project.

We use evidence-based tools. We are focusing on a child’s strength and qualities.

 

We use tools designed by a qualified psychologist, tailored to work with children from all ages and backgrounds. 

Little Lions: raising mental health awareness

They work and live in Kayamandi, a township close to Stellenbosch and Cape Town. The area is known for its big division between rich and poor and with lots of children living in challenging conditions.

Child psychologist, PhD student at the University of  Cape Town, & entrepreneur. 

"Working with children is the most rewarding thing there is for me, because of their sense of natural optimism and need to explore the world. But what if they lose that 'spark', their hope, and fail to reach their full potential? 

 

That's what I like to work on with children; To strengthen their self-esteem and their believe in themselves."
