IMF Educational Projects for Children
The Ian Mavor Foundation designs and produces resources for children and their families and gifts them to children via other charities, community groups and individuals that need resources to help the children that come into their care for help and support.
Our current projects include:
Paradise Kids Storybook Collection
The Paradise Kids Storybook Collection is designed to be a useful tool to help children relate to the deep emotional issues and the painful situations they are currently facing in the safeness of a storybook. The storybooks help children identify the causes of their feelings and provide gentle reassurance that they can; handle this change in their life, learn valuable life skills, be reassured of the ability to handle future challenges, become strong and resilient.
Storybooks can be purchased via the Angel Appeal website. A portion of books are sent free of charge to those needing help and support but cannot physically attend the Paradise Kids groups.
Paradise Kids Buddy Training Manuals
IMF aims to design and produce the training manuals that assist in the training of Paradise Kids Grief and Loss Buddies. The manuals are provided free to each buddy as part of their training. The Paradise Kids ‘Buddy’ role is to support children to explore, understand, and express safely their feelings about their loss. As a buddy, they will work each week with the same child in a group setting.
Through Fiji Kids Learning for Life, who is a grassroots charity providing financial assistance to help the neediest children attend school, the Ian Mavor Foundation is able to support Malakai.
Malakai is a sixteen year old boy who lives with his very large extended family who rely heavily on a subsistence livelihood.
