about the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

The education system in many countries prioritizes academics over social and emotional development while research shows that success in real life depends highly on developing your emotional intelligence. Also, cybersecurity for kids and young adults is an increasingly important topic to address. Life Skills is a project-based learning curriculum addressing both issues and many more.

How does your innovation work in practice?

Life skills is a proprietary curriculum for Grades 1-8 it can be taught as a separate subject or integrated with other subjects. The topics are chosen carefully and are age-appropriate.

Through the Life Skills program the students develop better self awareness and self regulation as they learn about different emotions such as anger, frustration and jealousy to name a few.

Students also develop their social awareness and relationship management as they learn about empathy, problem solving, conflict resolution skills and making a difference.

Additionally they learn about online safety, cyber bullying and over coming gaming addiction as well as health and safety at home and some basic nutrition concepts.

Furthermore, higher grades prepare for life with topics such as entrepreneurship, perseverance, resilience and grit.

A 2018 study found that 76.5% of parents have found change in their childrens' personality or behavior as a resulting of participating in the Life Skills program.

How has it been spreading?

Life Skills is approved by Ministries of Education in five out of six gulf countries. It's currently implemented in over 30 schools.

Life Skills continues to grow and spread due to the program's own success and word of mouth between principals and school leaders. It is considered to be one of the region's most successful and sophisticated personal development programs for students in schools. Additionally there are our direct marketing efforts to schools such as live presentations, workshops and webinars.

Life Skills is a required subject in some GCC countries and optional in others. Some schools have chosen to implement Life Skills as their social studies curriculum given the strong impact the program has and how relevant the issues covered by the curriculum are in today's world.
