Mini Mermaids in London Donate Fundraise Mini Mermaid and Young Tritons UK provide programmes for children aged 7 -- 11, to increase self confidence, self esteem, gain a different perception of strength and increase participation in movement and activities through thoughtful, volunteer lead programmes. Small groups meet over 12 sessions throughout 6 weeks with a mentor and use discussion, journal work, games and activities to work through a different theme each week. At the end of the programme, the children take part in a 5km challenge where they are encouraged to run, walk, skip, sing their way around. Working and supporting each other. The finish line represents hard work, determination, struggle, optimism, goals set, goals met, opportunity, an unknown path walked confidently. The programme aims to provide a platform to help children discover their own voices, increase self-confidence and self-awareness whilst starting them on a path to a lifelong love of movement. Our mission is to teach every girl to lead a balanced life by listening to her inner voice, valuing her uniqueness and learning to love movement . Our mission is also to teach boys the value of identifying their feelings and emotions, placing importance on starting conversations with each other and re defining the concept of strength to show that it is more than just about how physically strong they are. We are launching a new programme in London and desperately need your help to make it work. Thank you in advance for your help.
