Wellbeing Guardians@6weekchallenge is a fun, motivating, and interactive project, offers a universal approach to promote bio-psycho-social wellbeing of schoolchildren, based on Positive Psychology while encouraging them to establish positive values and practice the character strengths. Click here to discover more about the character strengths.

The Challenge also helps establish a more substantial bond within the children’s social network through interacting with family, friends, and community members in positive and meaningful ways, which in turn strengthen their support system.

The Challenge aims to increase schoolchildren’s resources to cope with negative emotions, stress, anxiety, fear, and boredom, that may be brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, school suspension, and lockdown measures.

Outcome of the Challenge will be measured through a before-and-after survey, where the result will be used to study the long-term contribution on developing the community’s wellness.

*Project date: 21 Mar to 1 May 2022
