The Media Initiative for Children Respecting Difference aims to:
- Increase awareness of diversity and difference issues
in Northern Ireland among children aged 3-5, their parents and teachers.
- Help young children to understand
what it feels like to be excluded and encourage them to be more willing to include children who are different from themselves.
- Encourage young children to demonstrate respect
and the active inclusion of others who are different, rather than ridiculing, fighting or rejecting them.
- Make Respecting Difference
a very real experience for young children and something that can be shared with their families.
