Life skills are abilities and strategies for adaptive and positive behavior that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life and children should be taught and facilitated to acquire life skills through schools. We are working with the schools and the local communities to strengthen these skills. Parents and communities have raised concerns about their children gambling and sport betting and this has led to addiction especially among teens and the youth with adverse negative consequences. The parents have recommended us to work closely with the schools to strengthen the above initiatives.
We visited few schools in Nairobi and we took the children through the exciting discussions on their understanding of life skills.
