What is Safe Circles?

Safe Circles was started by three people who are passionate about social reform. We came to realise that education is the only real route to change, and began creating the content that we felt was lacking in our education system. 

Our goal is to equip any person in any part of the country with the resources to deliver high quality education on topics that matter to the children in their community. 

Our content is informed by the recommendations of global authorities on child education, the efforts of similar countries, the insights of local specialists, and the responses to workshops we have personally conducted in the field.
