Life skills is a good program to be taught to the community members, since life skills programs is being taught at school to the pupils it is better to also teach the parents of theses children too so that they can some times share what they have learnt.

They told her that they have gone to the mosque since this village is dominated by Muslim, every Friday they do go for prayers, Manuela decided to wait for them, when they came , Manuela started, by asking them if their children have ever shared with them about life skills, some parents said yes, others no because their children may not be among the age bracket that Kibo Group is teaching.
