Life Skills Learning for Adolescent Girls (LSLAG)

OVERVIEW

The key issues, which the project will address, are related to providing sufficient information regarding personal development. Some of the issues we are challenging are poorly presented in terms of decision making in life and inadequate possibilities to receive resources for education and personal development among Cambodian youth, especially adolescent girls. These issues affect young youth in real practice. The LSLAG project will address these issues by installing a new contextual curriculum that are paralleled with a context to provide adolescent girls with information and skills they need to solve issues.

 

WHAT IS P.A.C.E. IN LIFE SKILLS LEARNING FOR ADOLESCENT GIRLS?

PACE is completely defined as the Personal Advancement and Career Enhancement program is an innovative program that incorporates basic gender skills for girls aged 11 to 17. This program is divided into 2 age groups, such as:

  1. Curriculum for teenage girls (ages 11-13)

  2. Curriculum for adult girls (ages 14-17)

 

The program aims to make a healthy and positive transition to adulthood while recognizing and addressing gender vulnerabilities and inequalities. The core belief and potential of the curriculum is that girls can transform their own lives with the essential skills that were given to them when they are teenagers.

 

MAIN GOALS
