The pro­gram al­lows par­tic­i­pants to learn and ex­pe­ri­ence new things, the press re­lease states.

The ac­tiv­i­ties were de­signed with mea­sur­able out­put that en­hances youths and chil­dren’s in­ter­est and mo­ti­va­tion to­wards whole­some education. The ac­tiv­i­ties in­cludes ju­nior read­ing, dance, and arts and crafts, learn­ing to live to­gether, film mak­ing and fo­rum theatre, eth­i­cal lead­er­ship and also Driglam Namzha.

He said that he came to know about the at­tribute of a lead­er­ship and ef­fec­tive mind train­ing. “The pro­gram in­cludes the num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties such as my life tree, in my shadow, goal set­ting, de­sign for change, learn­ing for live to­gether and my silent jour­ney”, said Buddi Man.

He added that they have been also taught about req­ui­site re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, in­ter­view and also the crit­i­cism.

She said that be­fore join­ing this pro­gram she doesn’t have any idea about the film mak­ing. “Now I will be able to teach to my friends in my School who do not know about this film mak­ing”, said Deki.

One of the par­ents Mr. Sonam Tsh­er­ing 38 said that it is very fruit­ful be­cause they learnt many new things. Un­like in the schools this pro­gram will en­cour­age our chil­dren with read­ing habit even they have time to in­ter­act with new friends. If th­ese pro­grams have not been or­ga­nized, our chil­dren will waste their time just by watch­ing tele­vi­sion at home. “But the time du­ra­tion is very short for our chil­dren to en­gage”, he added.

Mean­while, more than 200 youths from age ranges from seven to 14 have par­tic­i­pated for the three weeks pro­gram.
