Children Learning Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

Recently, we learned of a program in Nigeria where children are learning:

  1. Road safety;
  2. The green cross code; and
  3. CPR.

Even with over 30 years of experience in promoting ‘what children can do’ in health – I felt that teaching them CPR was a bit of a stretch. But why not?

Here’s a YouTube video of a firefighter teaching two different age groups CPR.

We think this video strikes the right tone.
