Especially for upper level primary school pupils and first-year students in secondary schools, we offer an interactive, two-hour ‘usual unusual’ lesson about connection. It has been taught to thousands of children already and in several schools it’s part of the curriculum. &samhoud employees teach the lesson, regularly with clients and other people who support our higher goal.


During this connection lesson children will think about their dreams and talents and how to connect with others. They do this by answering questions such as ‘What do you want?’ and ‘What are you good at?’. Children will also discover why it’s important to know the answers to these questions. That is how they learn to connect with themselves and that is the basis for positive connections with others. The connection lesson is linked to social emotional learning objectives and consists of group discussions, video clips, exercises and a boardgame. The lesson is offered free-of-charge, although voluntary donations to the &samhoud foundation are very welcome.
