Mission Statement

Our vision at the Säjai Foundation is to ultimately create positive community-level changes in childhood obesity where children, youth program leaders and families feel empowered to live healthier lives while they appreciate, respect, and stay involved with nature. We do not duplicate services. We efficiently educate youth during out-of-school and in school youth programs.

Description

The Säjai Foundation Wise Kids programs are a focused effort to reduce childhood obesity and teach children tangible steps toward healthy eating and living. The in school and out-of-school time healthy living education aims to:

  • Change children’s perceptions regarding the foods they eat and increase their level of physical activity while promoting outdoor activities and awareness.
  • Work to shift children’s daily patterns so they learn to balance daily food consumption with daily exercise and outdoor participation in order to reduce their risks of obesity.
  • Re-engage children with nature, encouraging wise activity and nutrition choices while linking youth to resources like park and recreation programs that promote a long-term appreciation for nature and a desire to spend more time outdoors.
