The two-year project began in 2018 in 23 schools in two provinces including Kampong Cham (15 schools) and Tbaung Khmum (8 schools). The modules of this project are: 1) Me and my environment, 2) Me and my body, 3) Me and my relationship, 4) Me and my desire, 5) Self, 6) Self-efficacy, 7) Intellect and 8) Personality Have a job.

 

Because of the project is universally designed and implemented to improve the status of girls, it is imperative that Khmer contextualize the eight life skills lessons including 1) Khmer context, facilitator's lesson plan, 2) Khmer context, help documents for students to be attached to the facilitator's lesson plan and 3) organizing the module in an organized and easy to read format.
