The World Health Organization has defined life skills as, "the abilities for adaptive and positive behaviour that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life". Hence our approach is holistic and the basis of our work is on the principle that young people need to be trained in different skills in order for them to realize their full potential.
LSDF further utilizes the power of innovative ideas to transform and empower our target group with life skills. Innovation through sport is our theme and it through the process of introducing new and exciting programs; we envision young people lives can be changed.
Through the LifeSkills Development Academy (LSDA) we aim to engage young people in sports, capacity building in both sport and leadership. To achieve all this LSDF has an ongoing mentoring process. We envision that these key elements put together will provide a platform for our young people to excel.
We believe that once a young person learns skills, they will never forget it and it cannot be taken away from them.
We endeavor to use both Formal Education (FE) and Non Formal Education (NFE) to empower our target group. Through the LSDA we aim to empower young people with the following basic skills:
- Raising self-awareness
- Problem Solving Skills
- Communication Skills
- Employability skills
- Leadership skills
- Planning skills
- Relationship Skills
