Life skill training


The project benefits 1200 young men in school and out of school in Meki locality of Ethiopia. The youth in and out of school that are living in and around Meki town are vulnerable to various psycho-social and economic problems including ease of being affected by Sexual Transmitted diseases (STD), HIV/AIDS and related health problems. Income generating activities are rare as the youth lacks entrepreneurial and technical skills that would enable them to exploit job opportunity.

In the stated project catchments area (Meki town and its vicinity), the prevalence of undesired behavioral tendencies and unchallenged harmful traditional practices are considered as the main factors that are perpetuating premarital sex, extramarital sex, multiple sex engagement, polygamy, coercive sex, gender inequalities and women rights violation. The girls in particular are subject to unplanned sex relation that resulted in unwanted pregnancy that leads to eloping or unsafe abortions.


The issue of self-confidence, individual assertiveness and understanding how to take proper decision making procedure is seemed the missing element as far as the youth in the target area is concerned. The prevailing situation indicates the existence of peer influence without having adequate information and developing. Thus this project help to ware the youth on life skill issues and make proper decisions upon themselves in relations to social contacts and personal skills development for work.

Long-Term Impact

Life skill training as it can be seen from its connotation is skill development in the young people for the development of their behavioral and practical life changes. Our role at the time of undertaking skill training would be much more of facilitating and forming different forums/clubs in school and out of school so that the formed committees and the trainee themselves expected to takeover their skill for their future life engagement.
