School-based Life Skills Development

School-based Life Skills Development

RODI runs a school-based life skills program which aims to strengthen the capacity of schools and juvenile rehabilitation centres to play a vital role in promotion of vocational and technical education. The learners are equipped with vocational and life skills to enhance self-reliance and improve their livelihoods during and after leaving school in a manner that complements the current education curriculum. 

Our interventions in schools have been developed further with the introduction of the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC). Student are now equpped with life skills that complement their classwork.

The school based interventions contribute to the global efforts towards achievement of SDG No. 4: Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

The learners get taught on permaculture, agroecological principles, agro-processing and value addition, production of hygiene and domestic products. They are also taken through life skills to provide them with a training that is geared towards a holistic development. 

These lessons also aim at building the self-esteem, self-confidence, performance and character of the learners. The learners are also awarded National Industrial Training Authority (NITA) certified certificates after the training.
