The World Health Organization defines life skills as “the abilities for adaptive and positive behavior that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life.” UNICEF declares them as “a behavior change or behavior development approach designed to address a balance of three areas: knowledge, attitude, and skills.”


At Nehemiah, we have adopted UNICEF’s Basic Life Skills modules to help equip our youth with the practical fundamentals they will need to navigate their lives and relationships. These include skill areas such as stress management, self-esteem, empathy, goal setting, resilience, critical and creative thinking, and more. 


We also provide empirical training of other life skills many of us take for granted. While most people who grow up in a standard household naturally learn basic hygiene and nutrition, children who grow up on the streets never observe such basic habits as brushing your teeth or thinking about the consequences of poor food choices. As such, we impart training for meal prep and cleanup, the importance of showering regularly, and taking care of a home and property.


Our lives, our mission, our purpose!
