Need for Life Skills
UNICEF and WHO have identified “life
skills” as important elements in the
positive development of young people.
Confirmed and validated by UNICEF
surveys conducted in three regions in the
world.

Life skills education is more than a
set of classroom-based activities. It is
an empowering approach to health
promotion and primary prevention,
helping young people to take positive
actions to protect themselves and to
promote health and positive social
relationships.
