Our education system mostly focuses on academic and rote learning. Students have little access to education that will help them grow as individuals and work on their intrapersonal and interpersonal skills.
While mainstream education today focuses on math, science, history and language, there is a need for it to also focus on life skills. Life skills as defined by World Health Organisation are the abilities for adaptive and positive behavior that enable humans to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of life. Childhood is where these abilities must be developed.
Fly Higher India (FHI), a non profit initiative of APMVM Foundation is working towards inculcating life skills, counselling, and imbibing confidence among underprivileged children and youth across India. Started in end of 2017, the initiative soon spread to various cities and impacted lives of thousands of children and involved hundreds of volunteers.
The distinction lies in our simplicity, transparency, adaptability and creativity. Being a diverse group of enthusiastic youngsters spread in various cities across India, we come together for the sole, unadulterated purpose of adding value through innovative and interesting techniques to the less fortunate kids.
