A real-world problem nowadays is bullying and discrimination inside and outside classrooms where students hurt themselves physically and emotionally. The purpose of this project is to raise awareness of how discrimination may exclude students and affect future inclusion into the society and to also reduce any type of discrimination among children and in society by accepting and helping each other. We can all contribute to a more communicative and friendly society by learning correct manners and expressions that we need to address ourselves to others.
