Why do we need Life Skills?
In recent times, the need for developing stronger life skills has become more acute.
Focusing on building life skills in the next generation is imperative in enabling them to handle
different situations capably. In a country like India, where a vast majority of the population is young, life skill development enables young people to direct and manage their lives positively.
Governments We Engage With
We work in tandem with local and state governments across Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Maharashtra and Mizoram to contextualize and rationalize life skills. In the next three years, LSC will partner with four State Governments to build and roll out these assessments to over 40,000 students, 1,000 teachers and 100 State government officials.

One in three children in India live in extreme poverty and have stunted and/or wasted growth. Children from vulnerable backgrounds are exposed to a combination of adverse experiences causing an irrefutable impact on their physical and mental health. Empathy-based transformative pedagogy, experiential learning, and mentoring can help young people immensely.
