CoupleCards is an innovative voluntary initiative which we believe will make a difference to society. The objective is to help couples develop the necessary skills to communicate, connect and strengthen their relationship.Each card helps the couple express an emotion and includes hints to enable the couple discuss and understand their particular situation. Once a couple understands the concept they will develop way of how to use the cards …. The focus remains strengthen the relationship.What price would you pay to help a couple to build a strong relationship? It is priceless, so our idea is to make it available all couples all over the world.We welcome donations and sponsors to help us along the way …The concept will succeed if each one of us believes in contributing part of our life for the good of society, we need volunteers who believe in the idea and share it with other couples. Once it works for you, please pass it on, the true joy and happiness in a relationship comes from giving, from sharing your experiences with others, so they too can be happy

- First there is a reason why this discussion is necessary, here we express our feeling
- Then comes the actual discussion itself, which needs to be handled, with good & bad moves
- Finally the discussion needs to be settled, ideally with a win/win attitude, making up
We also have created another education tool where children and families can learn communication life skills while playing a game. Friendship Cards are an interactive tool which can be used with friends at school and families at home. They help in the development of emotional literacy and conflict resolution skills, which empower the individual to cultivate positive attitudes.
Friendship Cards will provide children with ideas to make good choices that contribute to a happy and meaningful life. Friendship Cards will help children take positive actions to build a character based on strong values and healthy relationships.
Happy Children and Happy Families are the foundations of a strong and stable society.for more informations visit www.friendshipcards.org
