Colors of Kindness helps children develop the skills necessary to cope with the new and difficult emotions that accompany emergency situations and trauma.
Colors of Kindness (Colors) is an initiative led by Amal Alliance. It is a multi-award-winning EdTech solution that:
- improves children’s social and emotional competencies,
- increases well-being of children, caregivers, and teachers, and
- increases access to quality inclusive education.
Prior to the pandemic, Amal Alliance was dedicated to building brighter futures for displaced and disenfranchised children in Greece, Lebanon, and Turkey through education and social development programs. When the pandemic hit, it not only put already vulnerable children at further risk, but it stripped all children of their educational pursuits and ability to play with their peers. Like the rest of the world, we were forced to pivot from our traditional in person classes and explore how to best leverage technology. Our ability to pivot and repackage our social and emotional expertise, created opportunities that at the time were still unknown to us.
