An SEL Book for pre-teens

Social-Emotional Learning is an important focus area for schools today. SEL is known to help with mental health, thriving communities and academic achievement among students. SEL is a new field with emerging ideas, but the content that reaches children must be clear and engaging. To this end, we're developing a set of SEL workbooks, based on the Indian Social Emotional Learning Framework developed by TTF. 

Children need an implicit understanding of SEL topics. The books have thought-provoking passages of text, group activities, worksheets and journaling prompts.


Without restricting teachers' creativity, these books will aid parents, schools, NGOs and counsellors to give children space to playfully work on their social-emotional competencies.


We aim to release 3 books in English in the academic session of 2023.  With the support of many collaborators and advisors, we have come far since the conception of this project in 2020. 



Have those meaningful conversations you always wanted to! Get into the details of your ethics, your community and see your child develop their sense of self
