Students Productive Life Initiative (SPLIN): This programme is designed to give young people the desired clarity and a broader perspective about life beyond the classroom environment. Although tailored to specific organization or school’s needs, but generally speaking; SPLIN focuses on topics like self-mastery, leadership, values, goal setting, career readiness, sexuality education, social media etiquette, financial literacy and talent discovery.
