Functional Reflex Therapy Global Projects
Sharing the nurturing touch of reflexology through the FRT Rainbow Relaxation Programme supporting the emotional wellbeing of children and adults, reaching out to challenging environments and communities throughout the world.
The FRT Global Project
The FRT team are thankful for the links that have continued with wonderful colleagues in Zambia.
The good news is that we are working together looking for new and innovative ways to reach more schools throughout the Southern Province and beyond with the FRT Rainbow Relaxation Programme and this is very exciting.Enjoy news from the recent 2022 Global Project and see how you can get involved to help make a difference.
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.
The FRT team returned to Zambia in July 2018, accepting invitations to visit and work with staff, pupils and parents in three schools.
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, like many people we were still a little apprehensive about travelling, so we based ourselves at St Mulumba Special School in Choma, providing training with the FRT rainbow programme for teachers, support staff, house mothers, parents and for many young people.
Welcome to the Functional Reflex Therapy Global Project 2023
The FRT team were delighted to return to Zambia again this year with the privilege to work with new schools, meeting many staff, parents and grandparents sharing the FRT positive touch relaxation activity, following the rainbow.
Please pop back to see our video to give you a little flavour of the project 2023, which will be here soon. (Along with updates for the project 2024)
In the meantime we are delighted to introduce you with a big hello wave to some of the wonderful young people at Choonga Primary and Secondary Inclusive School, in the Southern Province, Zambia.
