“When we provide people who care for children with the right support, they have the potential to change the world, one child at a time.”
Who We Are?
A Dubai-based social enterprise, Tanshi2a (which means ‘nurture’ in Arabic) raises awareness of child-centred approaches and Conscious Parenting practices in the Arab world. We do this by encouraging effective communication, positive relationships and respect for children.
Through our programs and services, we’re bringing the world’s leading research and practices in positive parenting, education and well-being to the Middle East.
Programs & Services
We believe in raising emotionally healthy children by using child-centred approaches to parenting and learning. Because we believe that parents need the most support and our focus is on Arab communities, we started by offering these tried and tested approaches to Arab parents.
A free support group for Arab parents, Circles of Love helps to establish solid family ties. We meet once a month to discuss effective Positive and Conscious Parenting techniques. We share our experiences and explore our feelings about parenting challenges in a safe, non-judgmental environment. These meetings will give you the chance to rethink your priorities and recharge your energy.
The Parenting by Connection program is based on 5 practical tools developed by the leading parenting organization Hand in Hand. These tools, which have helped thousands of parents around the world, were developed based on 30 years of helping families tackle everyday challenges in a gentle yet effective manner.
