Youths learn life skills

Young adults in an upwardly-mobile town like Jamshedpur, fast becoming a suicide hub of east India, need a crash course in values to anchor them in an age where the need for success surpasses everything else.

A three-day camp on life skills, called “Let’s make a difference”, for youths between the ages of 17 and 24 years kicked off on Friday at Kerala Public School, Kadma.

Hosted by international NGO Initiatives of Change (India chapter) and the school Trust, it saw around 200 participants.

Espousing the principles of purity, honesty, philanthropy and love, the camp will help school and college students as well as young professionals “rejuvenate their spirits”, hope the organisers.

“We are here to make a difference,” said youth director of the NGO Viral Majumdar.

The camp, which will conclude on December 1, is marked by interactive sessions, story-telling and life sharing activities from 8am to 5pm.

On the first day, there were group discussions on relationships. “We have been organising sessions with the same NGO at school. This time we thought of doing it on a bigger scale so that others also get a chance to learn,” said Vijayam Kartha, vice-chairperson of Kerala Public School Trust.
