Guided by these three fundamental principles, namely empathy, openness and acceptance, this project not only raises awareness among children about gender diversity, but also demystifies the vocabulary as well as the prejudices and misconceptions some students or teachers may have. 

In addition, by providing school staff with the language and tools to address these issues, “Hi Sam” gives them the opportunity to become actors of social change by fighting gender stereotypes and therefore contribute to the promotion of an open, inclusive and safe school environment for all.
