What are Life Skills?

They have declared 10 life skills, which are: Self-awareness, empathy, assertive communication, interpersonal relations, decision-making, conflict resolution, creative and critical thinking, management emotions and stress management.
The life skills contribute to:Gender equity, Democracy, the development of good citizens, Education for peace, Reduction of violence and abuse, Reduction of racism, Environmental Protection, among others.
Taiyari Mexico Project firmly believes that literacy and numeracy skills are essential in the children’s developed but no enough to prepare the next generation of parents, workers, citizens, and leaders of the world. Although the Mexican Government has focused its efforts on Educational Reform, this reform is mostly directed to create: Better training for the teachers, better-equipped schools and full-time schools. It would certainly be necessary to introduce programs and support our society by creating Life-Skills Programs that could help the children developed their personal and social skills.

Why Playing Experiences?
“Play and Learning” concept that has demonstrated its successful during the last 5 years promoting values and life skills for more than 580 children in Saltillo, Coahuila Mexico.In 2014, Taiyari obtained the International Rotary Prize for its benevolent path.Play is an excellent vehicle for helping children with their emotional development (Johnson, Christie, & Yawkey, 1999) As children play, they imitate, re-create, and rehearse roles that help them understand and solve problems related to everyday living. They form relationships, share, cooperate, master their feelings, extend the range of their experience, test ideas, and form associations between things, events, and concepts.
In the drawings children express what they have learned with Roncho. Rocho is a storyteller duck that teach the children through numbers and finances stories how develop critical thinking.
Taiyari wants to give the opportunity to the children to live “The Taiyari Experience”, encouraging the children’s right for a quality education and a healthy emotional intelligence.
