The project aims to prevent and diminish bullying, to combat it with the correlated eating disorder that could arise, as increasing health and mental health in primary schools.

Educational activities such as reading, adopted with thematic like bullying and eating disorder, are deemed to be effective for prevention, and positively influence the growth, nutrition and health of a child.

Our methodology and activities are based on national and international studies, challenging any other model, filling gaps and providing new methods of dealing with bullying and correlated problems.

To Impact the youngest, it is important to promote positive behaviours without ignoring the necessity to operate with the goal of diminishing problematic demeanours.

Intervention programmes that promote children growth require the development of either positive actions and thoughts, in addition to the prevention of troubled and antisocial behaviours.

The project gives identity to the bully and the target of bullying, provides empowering tool to both characters, creating authentic and responsible relationship between the two, and a stronger self-awareness.

Activities and Plan

There will be a combination of activities, from the We Are Stronger Charity anti-bullying programme ones, to the distribution of the book Lady Doughnuts, part of the series 'Cook with Me'. The aim of the series is to lead children, through the discovery and understanding of nutrients, to establish a balanced relationship with food and to build healthy eating habits from childhood, helping them to prevent eating disorder. This special extended edition has been written by Elisabetta Astolfi for We Are Stronger with the collaboration of the charity's psychologists on the dedicated aspect, to spread awareness, educate on bullying and prevent it.

  • Book distribution: each school will receive one book per children plus 10 books for their library (to allow future students to learn from it)
