MOT strengthens youth's robustness and mastery of life

MOT (meaning courage) is a comprehensive, global life skills programme aimed at strengthening youth’s awareness and courage to live, courage to care, and courage to say no.

MOT strengthens youth's robustness, mastery of life, mental health, awareness and courage. MOT promotes safe class environments where all are included.

Partnering with educational institutions and communities, we empower educators, social, and youth workers to become MOT coaches, delivering this programme over a maximum of 3 years.
