We are very pleased to announce that Tal Ben-Shahar is working on a new curriculum which, once completed, he will happily share with ELI Africa. The new curriculum, entitled “Well-Being Education”, is in line with our philosophy at ELI Africa and its purpose is to increase levels of well-being among members of the school community by helping students, teachers, and parents improve their self-confidence and their relationships with others, enjoy higher levels of happiness as well as success, learn how to increase their overall physical and mental health. Each of the six highlighted components is a pillar of well-being. We are excited about this curriculum and are looking forward to launching it at our ELI Africa Education Center in Mauritius.
