The Mission of the Manadoob Program for Self-Esteem is to educate, empower, and enrich the lives of children, as well as the educators who teach them, through the development and growth of children’s self-esteem.

"I have worked with children for 24 years. I had no idea the impact that teaching the Manadoob course would have on ME... I am touched by the eager and willing children who open their hearts, minds and spirits to themselves, their peers and to me.. I am amazed at the transformational power of this simple yet profound program. I am thrilled to be part of the Manadoob team." - Kim Ledoux, Manadoob Educator
