Trickle Up: An ACE story from the developing world

Trickle Up was established in 1979. Since then they have helped more than 1.5 million of the poorest, most vulnerable people living in developing countries move to greater economic self-sufficiency and connection with their communities.

They help the poorest graduate out of extreme poverty. They focus on women, people with disabilities, people from rural areas, indigenous groups, and refugees because they are disproportionately affected by extreme poverty.

Teaching interpersonal skills, resilience and wellbeing

The New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER) has just published Mental health education and hauora: Teaching interpersonal skills, resilience, and wellbeing.

Although it is for school teachers it may well be of interest to tutors in the ACE sector.

This resource supports teaching children and young people about mental health, wellbeing, resilience, and interpersonal skills. It was written with support from the Beeby Fellowship funded by the New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO and NZCER.
