I've already started an initiative called Pyramid Personal growth for kids but I've found that schools, as we know are suffering major cuts and have tight budgets. Pyramid Personal Growth wants to create two mindfulness centres for the local communities of Netherley Liverpool and Tower Hamlets London which work in partnership with the local schools in most need. The problem, says Jamie Bristow, director of the Mindfulness Initiative, a research and policy organisation, is that the poorest schools tend to get excluded. “Those schools struggling most with behavioural issues and high levels of stress and absenteeism are the ones that would most benefit from this, but they are the least likely to do it because they haven’t got the money.” The centres will offer free or highly subsidised mindfulness classes, workshops and events for the children and families who are in the most need.

Why it's a great idea:
After the centre's are built, they will be a self-serving community project where the local people who work in the schools are specially trained to keep them running.
Steps to get it done:
