Physical & emotional well-being support to protect, support, and heal displaced and conflict-affected Caregivers of children.

The Challenge

In 2017, more than 750,000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar into neighboring Bangladesh as a result of genocidal violence. 60% of them were children. They joined over 535 million children who live in conflict and crisis affected parts of the world.

Our Response

In response, we designed the first-of-its-kind Training Platform, which brought the world’s leading child well-being experts to Refugee Camps of Bangladesh through the power of digital media and technology. Our training content was accessed by over 50,000 caregivers, humanitarians, educators, and social workers in 100+ countries.

Breath-Body-Mind Child Well-Being Exercise Videos

Evidence-based Breath-Body-Mind (BBM) programs were created through 20 years of trauma work by Richard P. Brown, MD, associate professor in clinical psychiatry at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, and Patricia Gerbarg, MD, assistant professor in clinical psychiatry at New York Medical College. Clinical trials, including for survivors of disasters, show rapid, significant improvements in symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD.  BBM techniques counteract the adverse effects of stress and trauma on the nervous systems of children.
