"Become a Dzimba Agent!"

Dzimba is an image that teaches children about personal safety in communication with other people in an easy-to-understand way. To make the knowledge available to as many children as possible, we have developed the “Dzimba 9-Step Safety Program” - a cycle of 9 lessons for children aged 5 to 10. The program is implemented by specially trained instructors - Dzimba security agents, who present seemingly complicated things easily and clearly with the help of music, games, movies and role-plays. There are currently more than 600 Jimba agents working in Latvia. We invite every pedagogue who wants to work to join their group, so that all Latvian children can acquire safe communication skills in pre-schools and primary schools.
