Empowering Young People


On 12th August, 2016, together with the youth of Samdrup Jongkhar, SJI had an opportunity to celebrate “International Youth Day” organized by Youth Center Division (YCD) from Department of Youth & Sports (DYS) under Ministry of Education in collaboration with Samdrup Jongkhar Thromde, first time in Samdrup Jongkhar.

SJI had a dialogue with the youth on United Nations (UN) theme for this year “Youth Leading Sustainability” under Responsible Consumption and Production to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.

Thank you YCD and Samdrup Jongkhar Thromde for letting SJI to share our experience and challenges from the ground.
