1. Life Skills Training

Life Skills Training – This is the foundation on which all SLOT’s programmes are built.

What does it take to thrive in a world with HIV and AIDS, conflict, violence, and gender and ethnic discrimination? The challenges children and young people regularly face are many, and require more than even the best numeracy and literacy skills. That is why the 164 nations committed to Education for All and have included “life skills” as a basic learning need for all young people. Around the world, Life Skill Training (LST) is being adopted as a means to empower young people in challenging situations. LST refers to an interactive process of teaching and learning which enables learners to acquire knowledge and to develop attitudes and skills which support the adoption of healthy behaviours.
