The Aims

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.
