We are dedicated to building children’s self-worth and values to ensure they reach their full potential. From child sexual abuse to gang culture to online safety, children can be exposed to many different risks every single day. It is impossible for parents and teachers to be with children all the time: they must have the means to protect themselves.

SELMA – Hacking Hate
Bullying, Diversity, Online Safety, Prevent
Online hate speech is a growing problem. People often experience the internet to be a hostile space. Hateful messages are increasingly common on social media. To complement existing initiatives to regulate, monitor or report online hate speech, a more pro-active answer is clearly needed.
SELMA (Social and Emotional Learning for Mutual Awareness) is a two-year project co-funded by the European Commission1 which aims to tackle the problem of online hate speech by promoting mutual awareness, tolerance, and respect. The overall vision of the SELMA project is captured by its catchphrase: Hacking Hate. It builds upon a Social and Emotional Learning approach to empower young people to become agents of change; it helps them to better understand the phenomenon of online hate; it provides them with tools and strategies to act and make a difference.
