Raising life skills of adolescents in five governorates is what this program is about. The project aims at raising the awareness of adolescents regarding health issues and concerns through delivering counseling services to them by establishing counseling services at youth centers.
Etijah team has been concerned with developing the counseling manual, assessing the needs of young people in the reproductive health and social life aspects, as well as delivering training to the counselors and to volunteers who would contribute to different community based initiatives.
Young illiterate girls and boys participated in a life skills training program developed and delivered by Etijah work team. However, given that the project is implemented in five Governments of Upper Egypt, there was a focus on young adolescents, especially girls, who are illiterate and out of schools.
