    It's My Life is a series of interactive workshops, games and activities which were developed originally for Ignited Minds, to help young people discuss issues that were important to them.

    Since 2001, these workshops have evolved with active participation of young people, peer educators, trainers and organisations working with similar issues. Over time, these workshops have been fine tuned to work within practical constraints.

    (2001- 2007, Integrated into the Youth Resource Cells Project since 2007)

We have developed participatory learning aids on these issues...
