Life skills provide children with important tools for development, such as independent thinking, how to socialize and make new friends, and how to take action in situations where their parents or teachers may not be around to help or intervene (dealing with a bully or personal insecurities and fears, for example.) CYPF trained the children at Halal Children's home, an islamic home that takes care of orphans and vulnerable children, the training comprised of the following:

  • Focus And Self Control.
  • Perspective Taking.
  • Communicating.
  • Critical Thinking.
  • Taking On Challenges.
  • Self-Directed, Engaged Learning


Staying silent is like a slow growing cancer to the soul and a trait of a true coward. There is nothing intelligent about not standing up for yourself. You may not win every battle. However, everyone will at least know what you stood for—YOU.”
