What's included?

Learn 'People Safety' Skills

Learn important skills you can use right away to help you - or a person you support - how to make a problem better instead of bigger, as well as have better communication and healthier relationships with the important people in your life.

Learn Kidpower’s Four Keys to Teaching Safety

  1. Make it simple – because simple things are easier to remember.Be consistent – because consistent messages make more sense.
  2. Practice – a lot! – because repeated, successful practice makes skills stronger and increases confidence.
  3. Make it relevant – because people learn a skill faster when it seems useful.

 Bambo Cissokho
Singer, percussionist and composer, raised in a West African griot family in Senegal now living in Sweden. He is an elite percussionist within the West African griot tradition, and the rhythms play a central role in his music. The lyrics are inspired by the youth in Senegal, and the experience of leaving it all behind and starting a new life while staying true to himself and his culture. Bambo has supported Kidpower by donating the music your hear in the videos.
