WHY MINDFULNESS?

The joy of just being mindful

More youth are anxious, depressed and stressed than ever before. They need all the help and opportunities they can get to cope and flourish.

Mindfulness offers this break and helps them function more effectively and clearly.

The simple act of practising mindfulness–how to relax, focus and just breathe–could be one of the greatest gifts and lifelong skills they receive.

WHO WE IMPACT

Empowering youth with a lifelong skill

Mindfulness has the power to increase focus and, at the same time, reduce issues with anxiety among at-risk youth.

We conducted a successful pilot in the Singapore Girls Home in 2018, where we engaged trainers to deliver mindfulness-based programmes that help to reduce stress and improve behavioural regulation.

With its success, we expanded the initiative to other youth and children’s Homes and Shelters in 2019, including Pertapis Centre for Women & Girls, and Singapore Girls' Home.

OUR FUTURE PLANS

Introducing mindfulness to a younger audience

When we teach mindfulness to children, we equip them with tools to build self-esteem, focus better, and manage stress. That is why we plan to extend the programme to a younger audience, that will include primary and secondary school children.
