FRT Global Projects

Sharing relaxation skills and supporting wellbeing in challenging environments around the world

Functional Reflex Therapy Global Projects is a foundation which is very early in its development. It is designed to encourage the sharing of the nurturing touch of the Functional Reflex Therapy Rainbow Relaxation Routine for children and adults, reaching out to challenging environments and communities throughout the world.

Our project began in July 2017 when FRT travelled to St Mulumba Special school in Choma, Zambia, Africa.

St. Mulumba is a special place that provides a home, education and family support for over 200 children with physical, emotional and life changing conditions. A number are orphaned, some have HIV and need very special care and support.

Warmly welcomed by staff and pupils we felt very privileged to have time to share the skills to deliver the Functional Reflex Therapy Routine working with staff and many of the pupils.

We received such wonderful feedback and observed some lovely responses from staff and children, it made us determined to continue our support.

FRT Global Project 2018

The FRT team returned to Zambia in July 2018, accepting invitations to visit and work with staff, pupils and parents in three schools.

Our project began in Siavonga Primary School, which can be found lying on the north shore of Lake Kariba. We then moved to Flamboyant Special School in Mazabuka for a further week before heading to St Mulumba Special School. It was wonderful to return to Choma following our trip in 2017. A privilege to provide ongoing FRT support for staff and pupils and to introduce some new educational activities and therapies.

Our fundraising enabled us to provide FRT tool kits for each school, educational materials, communication symbols, resources and some personal products for the orphanage.

FRT Global Project 2019

The FRT team returned to Zambia in June 2019; privileged to support two more special schools and delighted to make a return visit to St Mulumba.

This year the project began in Livingstone at the small Cheshire Homes Special Education Unit. We were able to work with staff and pupils also with parents and grandparents who came to work with us in the classroom. Everyone enjoyed learning the FRT hand routine. Not only did the parents work with their children to deliver the positive touch activity but the children gave the routine to their parents.

How beautiful it was to see this happening in the relatively short time we had been working with them all.

Travelling on to Sinazongwe district we were welcomed into Maamba Special School for a week and continued to share the positive touch skills to deliver the FRT rainbow routine. At this school we worked with all staff and all 72 pupils during the week.

This year during the project we were invited to visit the Principal Education Standards Officer PESO the District Education Board Secretary (DEBS) and meet up again with the Senior education Officer for the Southern Province.

The FRT team say a big thank you to Zambia for your interest and enthusiasm embracing the FRT rainbow programme for schools.

Discussions, plans and preparations are already underway for the FRT Global Project Zambia 2020. We look forward to sharing more information as soon as possible.
