Life Skill Project aims at helping adolescents from underprivileged families through various counselling sessions as they go through several physical and emotional changes during these years. Such students need counselling to keep them away from wrong indulgences to encouraging them to focus on their academics.
Quick Heal Foundation in association with Pankh Foundation started this initiative in June 2015, currently benefitting around 2,532 students from across Pune region through this initiative. We have adopted 23 Municipal Corporation schools in Pune, Maharashtra (India) and to conduct these ‘Life Skill Training’ sessions for students from 9th standard in these schools. These children come from deprived backgrounds and usually their parents are also unaware of the importance to discussing such crucial issues with children.
And for those students who are already on the verge of falling in the traps of behavioral and family problems, alcoholic / drugs addictions, difficulty in studies, sexual abuse etc., ‘Life Skill Project’ conducts advance level counselling sessions to help students to deal with these situations. More than 1,750 students have benefited from these advance counselling sessions with the support of 17 volunteers as counsellors.
