Life Skills-Based Education in South Asia


  This overview is a broad assessment and mapping of life skills-based education in South Asia, both in schools and for especially vulnerable children and adolescents not in school. It is intended to provide governments, non-governmental organisations (NGO), United Nations (UN) agencies and other actors with information on life skills initiatives in South Asia, in order to support a more systematic and accelerated scaling-up of programming. The delivery of life skills to especially vulnerable children and adolescents ranged from non formal education to structured short-term courses to less structured open classes held in drop in centres, clubs, etc. This diversity of approaches reflects the lack of a widely accepted easily replicable methodology. The assessment raised concerns that all life skills programming, particularly for especially vulnerable children, should occur in learning environments which are stable and secure, which was often not the case.
