Young people have the right to lead healthy, productive lives. Yet, access to sexual and reproductive health information and services remains a substantial challenge for millions of youth in Pakistan. Life Skills-Based Education (LSBE)– equips young people with the skills to make responsible decisions for their health and well-being. Ujala has a human-rights approach, it also advances gender equality and reproductive health rights of young people.
Working closely with governments and civil society organizations, Ujala advocates for LSBE across the country, targeting youth both in- and out-of-school environments. Working in a variety of environments – from policy-level advocacy to community outreach.
LBSE is embedded in many international agreements and frameworks, such as the Convention on the Rights of the Child; the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights; the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights; the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women; and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Life Skills Based Education is also embedded in National Education Policy and Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Youth Policy.
