This program is meant to equip the youth with life skills. The purpose of this study was to investigate the development of LSE amongst primary school children in Kenya. The major research objective was to determine whether LSE contributes to character development. The research addressed these research questions: What is the status of LSE in Kenya; how is LSE implemented; to what extent has LSE contributed to development of psychosocial competencies; what are the challenges facing the implementation of LSE?
