90% of teenagers trialling these lessons said:
"It made me feel better about my life."
Lessons are accompanied by
our documentary film
Children of the Snow Land demonstrates the impressive coping strategies of a group of Nepalese teenagers who have spent their lives from age 4 until age 16 living and studying inside their school grounds - the 'ultimate lockdown' - without contact with their families, and yet they emerge as 16-year-old teenagers with tremendous courage, gratitude, patience, hope and determination to make the most of their lives.
Each lesson begins with the film and moves on to reflections and discussions around resilience, wellbeing, gratitude and how to face our hardships and move forwards, using insights and knowledge from the film to help students better cope with their challenges and to improve their wellbeing.
“This is a beautiful documentary and every child should watch it.”
"Learn from teenagers who have been through the 'ultimate lockdown'."
“Made me realise never to complain about anything.”

Why do we want to do this?
The mental health and wellbeing of young people matter to us.
As the Covid – 19 pandemic unfolded we saw that certain challenges faced by these students in Nepal regarding isolation and separation from their loved ones are now relevant globally and that their resilience, courage and character coping strategies could inspire others. In response, we expanded our educational packages to offer mental health support for young people in the UK and worldwide.
Teenagers globally have responded openly to seeing their peers in the film and have demonstrated improved wellbeing following this learning experience.
