La necesidad: ¿Cuál es el problema que tratas de solucionar?
In Brazil, 1 out of 3 students, up to 14 years, old has suffered aggression at school: there is no school without bullying. Children have been pressured towards better performance since early age. Comparing to 10 years ago, these same children experience considerable stress in their lives, carrying responsibilities and emotional burdens. Schools tend to focus on the refinement of cognitive skills and they lack on educating children in resolving their internal conflicts and unbalanced emotions they bring to school every day. This scenario this is causing a nearly unbearable situation with stressed and discouraged teachers and feisty children uninterested in learning.
La solución: ¿Cuál es tu solución? Sé específico.
The project “EduHeart: Education for Empathy and Ethics” teaches children in a playful and creative ways, important techniques of self-management, emotional balance and mental focus that will be useful the rest of their lives. The project develops the ability to manage stress and transform negative emotions into positive attitudes through practical techniques to stimulate the "relaxation response" and reduce harmful stress hormones. This helps the child to develop the ability to face life's challenges with energy and optimism. The storytelling and fun activities develop multiple intelligences in children and inspire universal ethical values and free expression of their full potential. This methodology is shared with teachers and parents of public and private schools throughout the country.
El Modelo: Muéstranos a través de un ejemplo específico cómo tu solución hace una diferencia, incluye tus actividades primarias
In several states of Brazil, the 48hs training is granted for free for teachers from public schools that cannot invest in training. The training includes exercises and practices to manage their own stress - yoga, diaphragmatic breathing, self-massage, deep relaxation and meditation. These techniques are passed on to children in the classroom afterwards that quickly transforms the classroom into a peaceful environment. During the trainings, teachers are inspired to rescue their charm in the noble mission of teaching, to develop their own creativity in storytelling and theater to make teaching more attractive and dynamic. Teachers do theater exercises, discovering their "inner artist" and learn how to tell stories in the "Magic Circle", a scenario built on the floor with dolls and ordinary objects in order to fascinate children and pass the ethical messages in a playful manner. Teachers are empowered to create democratic classrooms, with empathic listening in the meetings, establishing collective rules, negotiable curriculum, and collaborative projects. All these components, through an artistic and dynamic approaches, besides nurturing team work, develop a collective and cooperative consciousness in the school. And especially rescues teachers and students’ self-esteem.

Our approach distinguishes by creativity: the stories are charming, surrounded by fantasy and drama, they are told with music, gestures, dance and even rap! Furthermore to systemic approach, it works with body, intellect, emotion and spirit, it promotes positive and accelerated change for both individual and collective levels. The use of theater in education boosts the classroom and channels children’s excitation to the creativity. The approach is not merely verbal, with discussions on ethics and values, but uses practical exercises like breathing, relaxation and cardiac coherence to open the heart. This results in an EXPERIENCE of empathy that comes from within. The generated environment of positivity replaces the bullying, violence and conflict in the classroom with empathic communicatio

¿Cuál ha sido el impacto de la solución hasta la fecha?
We train about 1000 teachers throughout Brazil, offering training to educators-multiplier in 10 cities. We spread a "Circle of Love Kit" for kindergarten and pre-school for more than 3000 parents and teachers, which includes a guide, CD and DVD with the techniques used in the EduHeart program.
¿Cuál es tu impacto proyectado para los próximos 1-3 años?
Next year, we want to train and coordinate 50 multipliers who can help expanding EduHeart across the country, taking the project to Departments of Education in 25 cities, and offering free trainings fro hundreds of teachers of public schools. Over the next three years, we want to increase the number of multipliers and thus increase the number of targeted teachers. Create and develop a "complete kit" for elementary school (1st to 5th year), with a guide, CD, DVD, "Letters of Emotion" (based on the research of Dr. Paul Ekman), that teaches children to recognize and balance their emotions; develop entertaining flipcharts on the physiology of respiration and brain, and materials for storytelling. Distribute these kits at cost price to thousands of teachers and parents across the country.
¿Qué barreras pueden dificultar el éxito de tu proyecto? ¿Cómo planean superarlas?
The major barrier is the financial difficulty of teachers from public schools and whose could make the best use of our trainings. Even though our facilitators are dedicated people and don’t aim profit, we will have basic and unavoidable costs such as transportation, food, materials, etc.. Through projects such as Changemakers, we hope to have an initial fund to leverage the project, and with the success of the first month of training, we will surely attract other donors and investments to continue and expand the training of teachers for EduHeart program.

Historia de la fundación: Queremos saber acerca del momento en el que hiciste "¡Ajá!". Comparte la historia de dónde y cuándo el/los fundador(es) vio (vieron) el potencial de esta solución para cambiar el mundo.
When the project founder herself experienced great inner transformation resulting from such practices, and has begun to teach adults on how they could transform their lives as well. It has become obvious that these practices should begin from childhood in order to enable a person to grow with a firm internal values and positive attitude in life that could help to overcome all obstacles. The founder has pursued a continuous research and studies in psychology, neuroscience and endocrinology, and it has confirmed the belief that empathy is the basis of ethics and pro-social attitudes, which are essential for the formation of a new civilization of cooperation and compassion.

We can join efforts emphasizing the importance of fondness in the classroom, creating an environment of empathy and understanding among children, parents and teachers - and not only to mobilize campaigns "anti-bullying."
