Rainbows in Windows

This book directly addresses the multiple effects the COVID-19 pandemic might have on children across the world.

Above all, they learn that the routines they know, love and miss will certainly return and that kindness and gratitude to others is of paramount importance.
What other teachers have to say about us!
“With the help of organisations like Think Equal, we can turn this around and make lives better for women and girls. Their commitment to supporting others makes a deep difference in peoples’ lives.”
– Teacher in Canada
“The lesson plans are excellent and fit the group time format we already use with our children. I think the structured lesson plans will work very well as written as they will enable me to support practitioners in a very methodical way.”
– Teacher from the United Kingdom
“After working on the topic of “tantrums”, a boy approached another boy in the playground who was very angry. He picked up the rubbish bin lid and said, “throw your anger in here”. The next day, the mother of the angry child come to ask what had happened because the boy had spent
the evening throwing his anger into the rubbish bin and inviting his family to do the same.”
– Teacher in Kenya
“I see a lot of changes in the children for the better. Children who rejected other children for their colour or their capabilities, children who had attitude problems, they think equal now.”
– Teacher in Sri Lanka
“One child used to have bad tantrums often that would last a long time and upset other students. He now rarely has them, and when he does, his peers are much more tolerant about them. I strongly believes this would not have happened had it not been for Think Equal.”“
– A teacher in Singapore
