A core belief we hold at Hiwa Foundation is that a healthy and happy society starts with healthy and happy individuals. The projects we develop and run are all designed to improve our participants as individuals, and often this starts with the basics. Emotional health and wellbeing is a topic high on the global agenda for change, with increasing awareness of the need for self care and improvement, being intrinsic to the development of society as a whole. We run projects, which seek to improve the emotional and social health of individuals, couples and the wider family unit. We explore these ideas from a tailor-made perspective, unique to the rapidly changing region of the Middle East.
