Update on CNDC and Youth Money

NCSM submitted its report on the small amount of money that was given to us and the amount was used specifically in organizing youth programs. Two program initiatives were targeted by this funding. First, a Youth Brainstorming session was organized with 30 community youths who identified about 10 topic areas for program development that are of interest and necessity in the community for bringing youth together and building their capacity. In a recent meeting the Youth Committee has prioritized three topics for immediate implementation which is program for family and community interaction, especially targeting elders and youth.

The other priority program is an initiative to help explore career opportunities and employment preparation for youth. further discussion for organizing both these and other youth development programs is scheduled sometimes next month.

Submitted on February 27 and it was personally delivered by President Tikaram Adhikari in their office.
