Life Skills

Focusing on the Future

In the past if you asked our students what they wanted to be when they grew up, many would say teachers, tour guides, farmers or taxi drivers. In recent years, the list has become more varied. We have future scientists, professors, artists and even world leaders.

As these dreams stir in our students, it has become apparent that we need to fortify them with important life skills so that they can improve their economic situations and become active, productive members of their community. For some students that means helping them develop new strategies for farming and fishing; for others, exploring possibilities in local industries; and for the top students, preparing them for university.
