MANU is a wrap – around program that supports parents on their travels to parenthood. From the
positive pregnancy test to the busy everyday life as parents to the 3 to 4 year – old toddlers.
The MANU project is nationally supported and governmentally funded program that is offered to parents throughout the whole of Greenland. MANU material has been developed for modules: Parenting, The Child 1 to 2 years, The Child 3 to 4 years, MANU Cannabis, MANU Alcohol, MANU Parents Meeting and MANU Town Hall.
MANU educates, counsels and supports all personnel that work with MANU materials, so that all parents, including foster and adoptive parents, receive the same education, no matter where in Greenland they reside.
MANU prepares all parents, both women and men, on their way to be the best parents that they can be.
Both mothers and fathers are in the focus and receive the same possibilities to look back on their lives, think over where they are now and explore their dreams and expectations for their children’s futures. MANU’s goal is to give all parents/ foster and adoptive parents – to-be, the best possibilities with a new child in the family and also give parents with children 1– 4 years the tools for a good parenthood.
Educators in MANU are local social and health personnel, who through education and training in MANU’s concepts will work with the Parents.
